KINGSPORT, Tenn. – The Kingsport Office of Small Business Development and Entrepreneurship (KOSBE) presents KOSBE Award Winners’ SuperHero Mom Tribute, an opportunity to recognize and celebrate special, hardworking moms in our community.

Entrants have until 11:59 pm EST on Monday, May 5, to post a short submission about their SuperHero Mom and her superpowers to the “Kosbe – Award Winners” Facebook page. The KOSBE Award Winners’ SuperHero Mom contest is a Facebook social media contest. One winner will be selected to receive a supersize gift package with goodies from past KOSBE Award Winners. One winner will be announced on Wednesday, May 7.

“This social media contest is being conducted to celebrate moms across the TriCities and generate additional awareness for our past KOSBE Award winners. It is their generous spirit that supports our community and they continue to draw strength and encouragement from each other. We should never forget that giving is the best part about winning. At the end of the day, what we give is what we get,” explained Aundrea Wilcox, KOSBE Executive Director. “The SuperHero Mom Tribute is a fun spin off of the Annual KOSBE Award and is a great way for past winners to reconnect and work together.”
