The Tibbetts Awards are presented to those small businesses and organizations judged to exemplify the best in the SBIR or STTR programs.

Anyone can nominate a business and/or supporting organization for a Tibbetts Award including self-nominations. Please submit formal nominations via https://tibbettsawards.com/.

All Tibbetts Award winners will be selected by the SBA based on the recommendations of a panel of judges. Award winners will be notified in June.
