Lemonade entrepreneur wins NFIB small business video contest

The Small Business Works for America Contest has concluded. NFIB was looking for the best video answers to the question, "Why small business works for America?" More than 20 video responses showing a wide range of creativity were submitted.

You can see the grand prize winner, "Lemonade," from Marc Boese. He wins $5,000 in cash and an expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. to attend NFIB's Small Business Summit. You'll also find the three semi-finalists videos as well.

Contestants were required to create a 30-second clip that answers the question, "Why does small business work for America?" and submit the video to NFIB. After an initial review, entries were posted on the NFIB YouTube channel where viewers rated them. A panel of judges used those ratings to select semifinalists and the overall winner.
