Readers’ Choice Contest begins

Nominate your favorite people, businesses

The Express community newspaper is happy to announce that its annual Readers’ Choice Contest is back again this year.

This contest gives community members the opportunity to recognize the hard work and friendly service of the people and businesses in our region.

Perhaps there is a restaurant that makes your favorite burger or a hair stylist who gives you the perfect haircut. If so, make sure that they are nominated. Only people and businesses who are nominated will have a chance to be voted as the favorite in their category.

This year, we have added some exciting new categories, such as barber, teacher, chef, tacos, winery and dance studio. We have also broadened the ice cream category to Sweets & Treats and expanded the gift shop category to include novelty items.

On page B5 in today’s newspaper, you’ll find this year’s nominations form, listing the business and people categories where you can nominate your favorite business, person or organization.

The nominations form will be published throughout the month of July.

There are two ways to submit nominations:

∫ Drop off at our office at 9 W. Main St. in downtown Lock Haven.

∫ Mail to The Express Readers Choice Nominations, P.O. Box 208, Lock Haven, Pa. 17745.

We require that all nominations be submitted using the nominations form printed in the newspaper and only forms with a complete name, address and phone number will be accepted.

We’re asking that nominations be submitted to us by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6.

All of the nominations will be compiled and listed in a special section in The Express on Sept. 12. Then voting will begin to determine this year’s Readers’ Choice winners.

Stay tuned!
