Lansdowne, VA -- The Loudoun Chamber is seeking nominations for the 26th Annual Small Business Awards, where Loudoun’s business community will celebrate the contributions local small businesses, entrepreneurs and nonprofits have made to Loudoun County, especially during the COVID-19 crisis.

“Throughout this COVID-19 pandemic, Loudoun’s small businesses and entrepreneurs have proven how invaluable they are to not only our economy, but to the quality of life in our community. We are prouder than ever to salute these real American heroes, whose vision, work ethic and innovation are needed more than ever to face down new challenges to our prosperity and our safety,” Howard added.
