Valdosta - If you're looking to start your own business in Lowndes County, and you need a little help, there's only one more day left to enter Guardian Bank's Business Plan Competition.

The competition kicks off Thursday afternoon at 5:00 at Guardian Bank. Anyone interested in starting a business can sign up, as long as they agree to keep the business in Lowndes County and employ college graduates.

Participants will get all kinds of guidance in developing their business plans, and the winner will get $10,000 for start up costs. "There's going to be some classes offered through VSU and Valdosta Technical College that's going to help them in business plan writing and so forth, and they'll also be able to get assistance from the Chamber's professional consulting program," said Jud Rackley.

Business plans are due on February 15th and the winner will be announced in March.
