Readers can nominate any businesses, people, and places for each respective category from now through 11:59PM on Tuesday, November 14th. Once we count the votes, we’ll be announcing the top three finalists in each category. Then, from those top-tier choices, readers will vote again to select a winner.

Finalists will win a decal sticker to display on their storefronts as well as accolades on our website for all to see. View the 2022 winners here.

Readers and community members are the reason these businesses are so successful, so share the love and nominate them for every and any category. Scroll down for info on how to nominate.
