All nominations should contain the information requested for each category. Remember that judging will be based solely on the information submitted, so please take the time to provide details and to fully answer all questions.

The Awards Criteria

Eligible businesses firm must:
- Be U.S. citizen-owned.
- Have been in business for at least three (3) years.
- Be a for-profit enterprise.


Other considerations:
Alliance Nominations committee judges take into consideration many different aspects of a business owner's story. Business performance, growth and economic impact are very important, but the challenges and adversities a nominee has overcome on the road to success are considered as well. The nominee's demonstrated commitment to community involvement is of great importance also. Details are important, so please take the time to provide specific examples in reply to all questions contained in the nominations package. Judges are as equally interested in the story behind the successful business, as they are in the fact that the business is successful.
