The EPIC Awards annually honor the Woman Business Owner of the Year. In 2017, NAWBO Kentucky celebrated the 23rd anniversary of this prestigious award.

EPIC stands for Excellence as a woman business owner, Professional accomplishments during the past 5 years, Initiative and creativity in addressing major challenges in her business, and Civic and community involvement. These are all qualities that women business owners display each and every day. The judges, prominent members of the business community, base their decisions on these four areas.
