Small-business owners have about three weeks to enter SCORE’s fourth annual American Small Business Championship. Two businesses in each state and the District of Columbia will receive a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, an all-expense paid trip to a training and networking event in Dallas, and mentoring from small business experts at SCORE.

Three $25,000 grand prizes also will be awarded.

One 2016 grand champion, Garrett Takach, co-owner of Ninja Park Obstacle Fitness Gym, used his prize to fund a training program for children with autism.

Apply or nominate a business online at Champions will be announced in March and grand champions will be revealed in September.

Last year Cripple Concepts of Aurora and Flipside Pillow LLC of Englewood earned awards.
