The remaining four finalists will each receive a $200 American Express gift card.
“Local small businesses are the backbone of today’s economy, and it’s rewarding to be a part of a campaign that spotlights all the talented and aspiring entrepreneurs in our community,” Kathy Stokes, owner of the PostNet location on Mid-Valley Drive in Steamboat Springs, said in the news release. “There are certainly many business owners across the country who are deserving of this prize, but we hope that it comes back to the Yampa Valley.”
