The Business Boost Awards for 2012 are now open!

Businesses in the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme with fewer than 250 employees can apply for one of five awards and there are cash prizes of up to £6000 on offer!

Here are the categories:

Impact on the Borough (first prize: £1500)

Entrepreneurial Spirit (first prize: £1500)

Customer Focus (first prize: £1500)

The Apprenticeship Award (first prize: a 12 month day-release apprenticeship placement worth £6000)

The Judges Special Award (a discretionary award given to the judges’ pick of the most innovative business, with a £1000 prize)

To enter, submit your application – which must make a strong case on how your business boosts the local economy – before the deadline. (This is still tbc as they haven’t changed the date on the website. Last year it was the 29th July so at a guess the deadline will be around the end of July again this time.)

Successful applicants will then need to submit a business plan, and then a handful will need to present to the judges to help them make a final decision.

The winners are then announced at a ceremony in September.

It’s well worth taking the time to apply, because as well as the cash prizes there are also PR opportunities for the successful applicants. And just think what a boost it would be for your business, to have a panel of judges say you’re doing a great job and reward you for your efforts!
