Intuit's Love a Local Business Contest

$100,000 in Business Grants Giveaway

Deadline:  March 3, 2010

In a nationwide effort to help support the growth of small businesses, Intuit is hosting the "Love a Local Business" sweepstakes. Fans of local small businesses can nominate their favorite hometown haunt, which will make them eligible for a drawing to win a $1,000 Intuit Growth Grant, which includes a $500 Visa gift card and $500 in Intuit business services, such as Intuit Websites and Web Listings. One of those five winning local businesses will receive a grand prize of $5,000!

In addition, each business that is nominated will appear on a custom Google Map displaying favorite businesses from across the country. The more nominations a business has, the more chances they have to win a grant. Intuit has already awarded $55,000 in small business grants. Now it's time to show support for your favorite neighborhood shop!

This January and February, one business a month will win a small business grant worth $35,000. Each Grand Prize small business grant includes $25,000 worth of local radio advertising on the Westwood One network, $9,500 cash, plus $500 in Intuit products and services. Plus, four other monthly winners will win small business grants, too - each worth $5,000.
