U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced the seven finalists for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award 2008. The finalists, who will be honored during America's Small Business Summit 2008, April 16-18 in Washington, D.C., are:

"Each of these businesses exemplifies America's spirit of enterprise and entrepreneurship and deserves recognition for a job well done," said Thomas J. Donohue, Chamber president and CEO. "Small businesses are what this country is built on and their competitive spirit is an essential part of the past, present, and future of our economic growth and stability."

Each finalist was selected to represent one of seven regions across the country from among the winners of the U.S. Chamber Blue Ribbon Small Business Award. A selection committee will review each finalist to determine the recipient of this year's Small Business of the Year Award, which will be announced at a dinner ceremony on April 17 at the Renaissance Washington, D.C. Hotel. In addition to being honored at the Summit, finalists will receive a two-night stay in Washington, D.C. to attend the three day event.

The Small Business of the Year Award, sponsored by Sam's Club, was designed to honor businesses that demonstrate excellence in a variety of selection criteria, including financial performance and business history, staff training and motivation, community involvement, customer service, and business planning.
