announces winners of the Small Business Success Student Scholarship Program

This morning, announced the three winners of the second annual Small Business Success Student Scholarship Program. Congratulations to Lillian Ross of Las Vegas, NV, Omar Ziadeh of Silver Springs, NV, and Brandon Garnaat of Alto, MI!

These three deserving students each submitted an essay about how small business has impacted the people they are today. They were chosen as three of the top ten finalists by the scholarship committee, and the public voted via the custom Facebook voting app to name Lillian, Omar and Brandon the winners!

Each winner will receive a $1,500 scholarship to use toward their higher education endeavors.

The entire team would like to thank every person who applied for the 2014 Small Business Success Student Scholarship Program. Narrowing down ~500 applications to ten finalists was difficult. Congratulations to our top-ten finalists, and thank you for working hard to share the voting app and garner votes. We encourage you to apply for the 2015 scholarship season, which will begin this coming November.

Congratulations, Omar, Lillian and Brandon!
