We're excited to announce the first annual "Edmonson County's Finest" Awards, presented by the EdmonsonVoice.com. This is our way of allowing the community to let county businesses and organizations know who are the best at what they do, according to the most important folks...Edmonson County residents.
What's your favorite bank? Do you like one food mart better than the rest? Does your hairdresser or barber deserve an award? How about your insurance agent? Here, you'll have an opportunity to first nominate your favorites in twenty different categories, then vote on who's the best in each category. Edmonson County has many entities that are excellent at what they do, and here's your chance to let them know. The ones that don't win? Maybe they'll work harder to win next year.
Here's how it works: In order to nominate a business or organization for a particular category, they must be a full time operation located in Edmonson County and at least one year old. There will be 2-4 nominees in each category, depending on the number of nominees that are received.
The nomination process will begin in January, 2016. We'll provide a very user-friendly form on our site that will allow you to type in your favorite of each category. The nominating will take place in two parts: the first will cover ten categories, then the remaining 10 afterward. The following categories will be included:
Once the nomination process has been completed, we will compile the top vote getters and they will advance into the last round for final voting. The winners will be recognized and presented their "Edmonson County's Finest" Award at a reception to be held later.
We are not accepting sponsorships nor advertising for the contest. This is to ensure the most level playing field possible for all county businesses and organizations. The results are completely up to the readers of EdmonsonVoice.com and votes are counted automatically.
The Christmas rush is upon us, but we ask you to start thinking about who you feel qualifies to be "Edmonson County's Finest." Nominating will begin soon, and we're looking forward to this great event to help promote all of Edmonson County. As always, thanks for reading EdmonsonVoice.com.
