Chamber still seeking nominations for Small Business Awards

There’s still about a week before we reach the deadline for nominations for the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce Small Business Award.

The initial nominating process is pretty simple, and will be followed by a more time-consuming application process in January for those businesses that choose to continue in the competition.

The awards, which The Eagle helps sponsor, are now in their 10th year, and a look at past winners reflects the kind of business talent Wichita has. It’s a pretty impressive group, with staying power to boot.

If you’re interested in nominating your business or a business you admire, go to
