Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Wednesday, May 8, we officially launched our annual Hometown Choice competition on our website. If you’re not familiar with this contest, it’s a chance for local businesses to hear directly from local residents about their favorites. The lists include everything from your favorite local restaurants to your favorite places to shop. Who has the best burger in town? Who has the best fries? Where’s the best scenic spot? What about where to take an out-of-town guest?

We want to hear who you’d trust if your air conditioning went out or if you suddenly had a toothache. Which dentist are you going to? Out of all the great educators in our community, who’s the best? You, the reader, do all of the voting, and it’s a great way to share the absolute best of the best in our community. To participate in the nomination round, visit https://www.thetidewaternews.com/contests/hometownchoice-2024/ or scan the QR Code. Nominations can be made once a day per category. The nomination rounds will end on May 31.

Then, we’ll proceed with the voting round, during which the community will select the winners in every category. As part of the contest, anyone interested in advertising for their local business can get more information by emailing Mitzi Lusk at mitzi.lusk@thetidewaternews.com.
