Enter to Be a Champion of Small Business

Share this

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 16, 2013 — The search is on for the most veteran-friendly small business in America. Now is your chance to claim the title of champion!

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program and Spike TV’s Hire a Veteran campaign have teamed up to acknowledge small businesses that recognize the importance of hiring a veteran through the Small Business Tournament of Veteran Champions.

If your business is setting the bar for the rest of the country, this is your opportunity to showcase what sets your business apart. We also hope this Tournament inspires small businesses that aren't currently recruiting and hiring veterans to think about starting.


If you’re a small business and have made a significant difference in the lives of veterans, we want the country to know about it.

The winning business will receive a custom spot to air on Spike TV and two free tickets to the Spike TV Guys’ Choice Awards where they will be recognized for instituting the most veteran-friendly practices in America. The deadline to enter is April 26, 2013, so sign up today!
