Sponsored by the MSU College of Business and State Farm Insurance, awards are based on business development, family/business links, community and industry contributions, innovative business strategies and practices, preparedness for succession, multi-generational family business involvement and longevity. Awards are usually given to businesses in several categories: large, medium, small, very small, old and new.

All family businesses headquartered in Montana, except prior winners, are eligible for the awards. Anyone may nominate companies, and self-nominations are encouraged. Businesses that are nominated will receive an application packet to complete.
