The Innovation Hero contest is an online contest celebrating North Louisiana’s small businesses that exemplified the most innovative practices through the COVID-19 shutdown. These businesses will be nominated and voted on by the public, and the award will be $2,500 cash and billboard advertising.

About the Competition

As the Covid-19 shutdown forced many small businesses to close their doors, there were many small businesses that came up with innovative ways to continue to serve customers and expand their offerings. Staying open meant being creative, and the team at EAP wants to celebrate those businesses. You, the public, will be able to nominate small businesses in all twenty-one parishes in North Louisiana. A top-five will be chosen based on the number of nominations, and public voting will begin July 15. There are no restrictions on who can vote, so tell your family & friends!
