A few notes about the Best of the Best

  • The Best of the Best People’s Choice awards is organized by the Observer-Reporter and celebrates the best businesses, organizations, people, and more, chosen by you.
  • The only way a business can enter the competition is to be nominated, and only the top five nominations and ties in each category moved forward to the voting round.
  • All nominations count in the determination of the Best of the Best. You can log in daily and nominate a business.
  • You’ll be qualified to enter the $250 cash sweepstakes ONLY if you nominate businesses in a minimum of 25 categories.
  • The nomination period ends on August 1. Once the nominations are tallied, we will begin the voting round, which should occur in September. You will then be able to vote on the top 5 businesses in each category.
  • The top three winners in each category will be notified and given a chance to attend the event on Thursday, November 15, 2018.  The winners of each category will be revealed at the event on November 15 (and not before).
  • A Best of the Best special section revealing the top three and winners will publish in the Observer-Reporter in November.
  • A full explanation of the rules of the contest will be available soon.
