And the winners are ...
Actually, you'll have to wait until Friday to find out the winners in the Daily Citizen-News' 21st annual Reader's Choice Awards. In this special publication, readers — through the power of their votes — determined the best of the best in north Georgia.
This year's contest featured more than 130 categories. Categories ran the gamut. There were categories for food (best dessert, best hamburger, best ice cream), medical (best chiropractor, best hospital, best plastic surgeon), services (best cleaning service, best plumber, best trash service) and many, many more.
The contest began with an online nomination process to determine the top three nominees for each category. After that, readers cast their votes for their choices both online and through a form that was printed in the newspaper.
Reader's Choice is one of our most anticipated publications of the year. Businesses and professionals take great pride in being named the best in what they do. You'll see many of the award plaques being displayed proudly at businesses and other places throughout Whitfield and Murray counties.
Also, potential customers might discover a place they've never heard of that serves the best country cooking, or could be introduced to the best realtor in town.
We encourage you to pick up a copy of Friday's Daily Citizen-News. Take some time to read about the best that north Georgia has to offer. And if you're so inclined, try out one of the winners.
