Direct Energy Business launches Columbus Small Business Community Heroes

read | Share:

Direct Energy Business is thrilled to be working with ThisWeek Community News to bring the Small Business Community Heroes award program to the Columbus region for the first time. Direct Energy is committed to serving its many residential and business customers in Columbus and throughout Central Ohio.  We are also dedicated to investing in the communities in which we live and work. 

The Small Business Community Heroes award program will recognize a small business owner who exemplifies the volunteer spirit. Do you know a small business owner who makes his or her community a better place to live?  Please take a few minutes to nominate that individual by Thursday, May 29, 2014 by 11:59 p.m.

Here is some additional information about the program:

  • A small business is defined as having less than 100 employees.
  • The award is open to all small business owners in communities in the ThisWeek Community News market areas.
  • Nominations should be no longer than 750 words and must detail the specific contributions the small business owner has made to improve the community through volunteerism.
  • The winner of the award will receive a $500 cash prize and a $2,000 donation to the winner’s community charity of choice (must be a 501(c)(3)).

A selection committee from Direct Energy and ThisWeek Community News will review all submissions, and the winner will be announced in June. We applaud all of the wonderful volunteers and look forward to recognizing those small business owners who devote their time for the greater good of the community.

The Small Business Community Heroes award program will also be launching in Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Philadelphia this year. Please be on the lookout for future announcements!

Complete rules, the official nomination form, and all other information are available online.
