submitted online, postmarked or hand delivered to the SBA no
later than the end of the day, Friday, Jan. 17, 2014. 
Winners of the Small Business Person of the Year award and other
award categories will be invited to Washington, D.C., in 2014 to
compete for national titles and to attend National Small Business
Week events.
