How to Make Your Beauty Business Summit Grant Application Stand Out

The Beauty Business Summit judging panel will look for specific criteria in your Grant application.

What you can do to help your application stand out:

  • Be sure to fill out all of the sections on the application page. We are looking for details!
  • We want to learn about you and your company mission. Tell us specifically "what" you will do with the grant money and how your winnings will affect your community.
  • Your 3-minute video submission is your time to shine! You may need to practice a few times to get it right!

Stand Out with Your Video Application

1. Professionalism

Dress professionally with polished hair and makeup. Be sure your video is filmed in a professional environment (not your car or bedroom). We suggest using a microphone for clear audio quality. No background noise. If you use your phone, be sure it’s in the horizontal position.

2. Positive Impact 

Tell us your business idea and how the $10,000 grant could help launch or improve your business. Be specific and clear.

Answer the following questions in your video:

  •  What will you do with your grant winnings? Be specific.
  •  How could the grant winnings enhance your business and have a positive effect in your community? Be specific.
  • What positive impact will your idea create for future licensed beauty professionals? 

3. Creativity

Stand out with your unique idea and personality. Be authentic and real. Put good thought and intention into your answers.

4. Leadership

We look at how you currently show up on social media platforms and what you post to your community.

5. Video Communication Skills

How well you communicate your answers to the questions in detail is important. Be genuine and honest. Look into the camera. Smile. Have fun!
