"It is inspiring to hear about these students' commitment to small businesses in America," said Ted Devine, CEO of Insureon. "Insureon is proud to contribute toward the education of the next generation of America's small-business owners and supporters."

Insureon, the nation's leading online provider of small business insurance, today announced the winners of its fall 2017 Small Business, Big Impact scholarship competition: Andrea Cable of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and Selena Shore of Orange Park, Florida. Each will receive $2,500 to help with their tuition and other educational expenses.

Since 2014, Insureon has awarded more than $50,000 in scholarship funds to the next generation of small-business supporters. To be considered for the scholarship, students are asked to write an essay describing their favorite small business.

Andrea's essay focuses on her own small business, Andrea Cable Photography. She shares her journey about starting her business as a junior in high school, and how today she is able to balance running a wedding and senior portrait photography business with being a full-time student. Andrea is currently a junior at Eastern Mennonite University, where she is studying business administration, accounting, and photography.

In her essay, Selena told the story of a popular pizza shop in her hometown, NYC Meatballs and Pizzeria. She described how in addition to making delicious meals, the owner, Rocky, supported the community by holding fundraisers for families in need and donating supplies during Hurricane Irma. Selena is a junior at the University of South Florida, where she is majoring in biomedical science. She hopes to attend USF's College of Pharmacy once she graduates.

"It is inspiring to hear about these students' commitment to small businesses in America," said Ted Devine, CEO of Insureon. "Insureon is proud to contribute toward the education of the next generation of America's small-business owners and supporters."
