Nominations for the 2015 Montana State University Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship State Farm Insurance Family Business Awards are due Monday, June 15.

Sponsored by the college and State Farm Insurance, awards are based on multi-generational family business involvement and longevity, preparedness for succession, community and industry contributions, and innovative business strategies.

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.
