How to Participate

Nominate your favorite businesses by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, April 28, 2019. Your nominations will determine finalists in more than 100 categories.

  • Your nominations are saved as you cast them, so you don’t have to fill out the ballot all at one time.
  • Don’t see your favorite listed? Use the write-in field at the bottom of each category.
  • Categories will not be added once voting has started.

After the nominations are tabulated and the top five finalists in each category are identified, we’ll invite you to select winners in another exciting round of voting.

  • You may vote one time per category until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, June 2, 2019.
  • Three prize winners will be selected by a random drawing at the conclusion of the voting.
