Twelve Virginia businesses have been named finalists in the first Tayloe Murphy Resilience Awards Competition.

The statewide competition, sponsored by the Tayloe Murphy Center at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, is designed to spotlight successful businesses in the state’s most economically challenged communities.

The 10 cities and counties that are home to the 12 finalists present a variety of economic challenges, including high unemployment and poverty, lack of access to larger markets and unreliable Internet access.

Despite, these problems, the finalists have not moved their businesses to more accommodating localities.

Winners will be announced at a dinner in the Dome Room of the university’s historic Rotunda on Sept. 1.
