MARQUETTE – Smart Prize, the Marquette area business competition is growing in year two, and now is the time to enter.

Submissions for the competition are open until Monday March 6th.
 
They are currently accepting submissions for entrants, area businesses to be display locations and prize donors. Travel Marquette says prize donation has picked up in year two of the contest.
 
Anna Dravland, who is responsible for community relations and event marketing at Travel Marquette says those donations are a good sign.
 
“(It is) a really encouraging thing that the community is recognizing it for what it is, which is a contest to spur economic development and get people excited about entrepreneurial energy,” she said. “And I think with people reaching out and offering their support, they’re recognizing it as a legitimate business competition.”
 
Submissions can range from an idea on paper all the way to a small business looking to expand. There are over $35,000 in prizes up for grabs.
