From now through Jan. 31, you can nominate your favorite local business, person or place for the 2019 People’s Choice final ballot. The top five nominees from each category advance to the final ballot.
There are 11 main categories in this year’s awards: Food & Drink, Art & Entertainment, Shopping, Beauty, Health & Fitness, Home Services, Life Services, Auto & Recreational Vehicles, Real Estate & Home, Employment, Recreation, and Pets.
Each main category is broken down into multiple sub-categories. For example, under Food & Drink, you can nominate your favorite spot for appetizers, sushi, baked bread, barbecue, buffet, burger, breakfast and more.
To nominate your favorites, visit www.peopleschoicewestmi.com. This site also lists last year’s winners in each category.
In addition to People’s Choice, the Tribune runs dozens of promotions throughout the year, many of which offer chances to win prize packages.
For example, this past fall, the Tribune promotion “Oh Deer” allowed deer hunters to enter for a chance at a prize package from M46 Power Sports. The winner of that contest, Jeremy Hower, received a prize package valued at $1,400.
Other promotions throughout the year include March Madness Hoops Mania, Mother’s Day Photo Contest, Teacher Appreciation Day, Decked Out Dads Day, Back-to-School Photo Contest and Owen the Elf. Keep up on all of these promotions and more at www.ghtribpromotions.com.
