  6. It reaffirms why you started the business in the first place and helps you to rediscover what makes your business unique.
  7. The structure of an award submission gives you the tools to display financial information in easy to view graphs and tables which are perfect for ongoing business management.
  8. Asking questions like “what has your business done for the local community?” and “in what way is your business innovative?” provides you with great material  for future PR campaigns
  9. The Prize!  Aside from the accolades that come with winning, there can often be a significant prize which is obviously a bonus.
