The provincial government’s resource for small businesses across the province announced this week the Top Ten nominees in each category for its ninth annual Successful You Awards (SYA) contest.

This year’s nominees are a group of businesses from diverse sectors such as healthcare, hospitality and education. Over 15 communities are represented by a local SYA nominee, from large communities like Vancouver and Victoria to small communities such as Comox Valley and Pemberton.

Nominees have been selected by residents of BC who benefit from these businesses, with votes collected online using various social media platforms.

The Top Five finalists in each category will be announced Jan. 30. Winners will be honoured Feb. 28 at a ceremony where industry professionals, government officials, delegates, awards sponsors and media will hear success stories from previous award winners, network with entrepreneurs within British Columbia’s small business community and mingle at the reception prior to the ceremony.  The 2012 Successful You Awards Ceremony will be held at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver.

The Successful You Awards recognizes outstanding small businesses across BC in six categories: Best Company, Best Concept, Best Community Impact, Best Employer, Best Green Business, Best Online Marketer.
