The awards are divided into five categories.
This years recipients are:

Naperville Dental Specialists and General Oral Health Care also took home the main prize, the 2013 overall Small Business of the Year Award.
And finally, the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award goes to the entire Anderson family.
In addition to running long-time businesses, the family is known for its volunteering from coaching youth sports teams, to their involvement in the Rotary and the Downtown Naperville Alliance.
