UPS is seeking applicants for its Best “Out-of-the-Box” Small Business Contest. Entries, which include a 500-word essay, may be submitted online beginning May 1 through September 15. All entries must be completed by an employee or owner of an eligible business on behalf of that business, with a limit of one entry per business. The first-place winner will receive $10,000 in cash (or UPS shipping); $1,000 in services from The UPS Store; an HP printer and PC with UPS shipping tools installed on it; and $5,000 worth of consulting services from UPS.
This is the second year of the contest. Here are profiles of last year’s winners:
