I was able to be a judge for the EY Entrepreneur of the year program this year – 2012. I was amazed at the quality of the candidates and the stories I head – from Western PA and West Virginia.
Here is a picture of the winners from our region. Here is a link to their profiles: http://www.ey.com/US/en/About-us/Entrepreneurship/Entrepreneur-Of-The-Year/WPA_WV_Article_Current_Year_Award_Winners
Next these winners go on to California to compete nationally. They will be one of 33 or so in their categories.
Good luck – I was privileged to be your judge
