I came across this small business competition and thought I would spread the word to the rest of the community.
The Small Business Challenge is giving away a total of $50,000 to three small businesses that are doing great work and could use a little push. With prize totals of $25K, $15K and $10K, even the small business to round out third place will get some much-deserved financial help.
Starting September 1st, participants can register their own deserving business, or nominate their favorite small or local business to win one of the three prizes. Participants can also vote for their favorite small business until October 31st. Not only is it FREE to enter, participants will have an active part in helping create jobs for the US.

Good luck to everyone who enters! :) If you've found other small business-oriented contests, please share them!
