The prestigious Small Business Awards honor the outstanding small business men and women who demonstrate excellence and
achievement. All nominees and nominees’ businesses must comply with state and federal regulations regarding labor, immigration, civil
rights, taxation, and other applicable regulations. Any financial information provided as required for the nomination will be held in strict
confidence by the selection committee and SBA.

By submitting the completed nomination form, the nominee certifies that, to the best of his/her knowledge, the information
provided is correct and the business has complied with regulations, as stated above.

Please note that SBA will accept only one nomination per person or business entity per year. Nominations in multiple categories
will also not be considered. If a duplicate nomination is received, the nomination submitted to HDO at the earliest time will be eligible for
the award. SBA winners who were honored in this category prior to the 2005 awards (more than five years ago) may be nominated
if they continue to meet all criteria for eligibility for the award.

A Family Owned Small Business of the Year will be selected from qualified candidates for the counties of Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, and the City &
County of Honolulu. From the top candidates, a State winner will be named. The State of Hawaii winner will be considered for the Regional
title along with other winners representing Nevada, California, Arizona and Guam and will be required to submit an expanded package by
January 2010 for that competition. The Region IX winner will then compete at the National level.

Three headshots/portrait-type photographs and 15-18 colored photo images of the winner, their business operation, and at least one
photo with/of their nominator will be required for publicity and the State Luncheon presentation. The photos may be in hard copy or
digital format. These items will be due in the District Office in early February 2010.
