AT&T is running an ad here at Small Business Trends for their small business contest. Since it is a contest in which you could win a slick new BlackBerry Bold — and get some recognition as a business owner — I thought I would call it out for those of you who read the site via RSS feed.
Here’s how the contest works, as I understand it. You nominate a small business owner who deserves recognition, and you get a chance to win, as do the small business owners who are nominated.
The contest is giving away a total of 72 Blackberry Bold units. Forty-two (42) of them will be given away to those who nominate a small business owner.
Anyone can nominate a small business owner. However, the small business owner must meet certain criteria: run a business at least 3 years old with between 3 and 10 employees. The small business must also be located in the United States. You can nominate yourself if you meet those criteria. Anyone nominating will be entered randomly in a draw to win one of 42 BlackBerry Bolds.
Then in February, 3 grand prizes will be awarded to the small business owners who are nominated who get the most votes. The 3 grand prizes each consist of 10 Blackberry Bold units.
The Blackberry Bold they are giving away is packed full of features — it’s like a little mini-PC. It has a full Qwerty keyboard. It also has built-in GPS and a 2-megapixel camera, and doubles as a wireless modem for your laptop when traveling. Check out the BlackBerry Bold here.
It was a little hard to figure out how the contest works, but I hope I have that right from reviewing the contest site.
If you know a small business owner who deserves recognition (including yourself), why not nominate him or her now? Go here to enter the AT&T / Blackbery Bold contest.
