Time for the nominations to start rolling in -- The Newman 10 awards are right around the corner.
Wednesday morning in Bryan they kicked off the campaign to nominate a small business for their achievements and impact on the Brazos Valley.
Each year 10 companies are recognized as the fastest growing in the Brazos Valley. Recognition is something business owners say benefits their bottom line.
"It's very well recognized," says Denise Fries. Her company, Fries Financial Services, won a Newman 10 award last year.
"A lot of clients called us and congratulated us for the award and, also, a lot of people called us to become clients. So, it's wonderful to get a referral from that sort of source."
Nominations are being accepted until March 14th. The Newman 10 awards are given out on June 6th.
