Your vote counts in Observer’s first People’s Choice Awards

Time to nominate in People's Choice Awards is running out

Everyone has a favourite place to eat, to shop and to visit. And now, it’s time to recognize those places with our first ever People’s Choice Awards.

The award categories range from best eateries and grocery stores, to your favourite hair salons and spas, and so much more. We want to know the best place to go walking, the best teacher, the best employee/employers, the best pet groomers and the best musicians. We want to hear about the best places to get inked, to have your computer serviced, or make a batch of u-brew wine.

No one is being left out, and there are almost 100 awards to be handed out in total. The winners will be chosen purely by number of votes received, and there are several ways you can have your voice heard.

First and foremost, find the nomination form in today’s issue (page 8) and fill in as many categories as you like. Then drop off your list at the Observer office at 7167 Pioneer Avenue in Agassiz.

If you’d like, email your nominations to ads@ahobserver.com.

Everyone who makes a nomination will be eligible to win one of three readers prizes. So, remember to clearly indicate the nominee, the category, and your contact information in your email.

You can also make a nomination through Facebook or Twitter. Each category is listed on our Facebook page, and the response has been overwhelming. You can vote by simply commenting in the appropriate category.

For our Facebook savvy readers, share the posting with your friends and ask them to vote, too.

The People’s Choice Awards will be held every other year, and winners will receive a certificate commemorating the award. All winners will also be mentioned in a special feature in the March 30 edition of the Observer.

But time is running out. All nominations must be in by March 12 at 4 p.m. to be considered for the People’s Choice Awards.

Eligible businesses must be in Agassiz, Harrison Hot Springs, Rosedale, Chilliwack or Hope.
