What business couldn't use an extra $25,000? Especially this year. Tell your story about how you have persisted through the pandemic to win up to $25,000 in a UPS Store competition in partnership with Inc. magazine

U.S.-based businesses that are not part of a franchise and have fewer than 50 employees are eligible to apply. The application asks business owners to recount a story of how they managed the difficulties of the last year and what they would do with the money if they were to win. 

Up to five finalists will contend in a virtual event for a total pot of $70,000 in prizes. Winners also could be featured in a print issue or a video with Inc., plus highlighted in UPS Store social media channels. You can read the full list of rules here and access the application through this link.

Applications are due at 11:59 p.m. EST May 8.
