Vote for your favourites during the Nelson Star online contest

Readers have the opportunity to make their favourites known as voting for the Nelson Star Reader’s Choice Awards are taking place now.

Everyone seems to have a favourite place to eat. A favourite store or maybe just a favourite place to take a walk and relax.

Now readers have the opportunity to make their favourites known as voting for the Nelson Star Reader’s Choice Awards are taking place now.

The awards allow the public to name what they feel are the best things Nelson has to offer.

There are five main categories — People and Places, Food and Drink, Shops and Services, Arts and Entertainment and Sports and Recreation — each containing dozens of smaller categories.

Some examples include Best Place to Take a Tourist, Best Local Politician, Best Sports Team, Best Breakfast, Best Clothing Store and much more.

You can also submit a ‘Bestimonial’ praising any aspect of life in Nelson that you want.

Anyone who submits a Bestimonial will be entered into a draw for a chance to win an IPad mini.

“This is an opportunity for readers to share some of their favourite things about Nelson,” said Karen Bennett, regional sales director for Black Press.

“It’s a chance to praise individuals, businesses or anything else you love about the community.”

Once the voting closes, the Nelson Star will announce the winners in each category as “The Best” that Nelson has to offer.

“We are looking forward to seeing how  people will vote. There are so many great options it may be difficult for someone to choose a favourite,” said Bennett.

To vote for your favourites, or to register your ‘Bestimonial,’ visit nelsonstar.com and click on the Contests tab on the top right of the screen.

Voting ends February 7, 2015.
