A Vernon company is in the running to be the best in B.C.
Vernon Teach and Learn has been nominated in the best company category as part of the Small Business B.C. Awards.
The top 10 semi-finalists in the category will be given one month to provide judges a detailed application outlining why they deserve to win the award.
These applications will be used to decide the top five finalists, which will officially be announced Jan. 23.
The winners of the category will be announced at a ceremony Feb. 23 in Vancouver.
Recipients of Small Business BC Awards are recognized with the Premier’s Prize of $1,500, a one-year all-access pass to Small Business B.C. education, resources and experts, and one-on-one business mentorship.
