Our 2018 Choice Awards contest will begin on Jan. 31, 2018 and will run though the month of February.

Want your business or resource to be in the running? It’s simple … share this announcement with your friends, co-workers, and clients. On Jan. 31st, share the nomination link through email, social media, text, etc. Encourage your loyal followers, fans, and clients to nominate you! Our website fans, newsletter subscribers, and readers will also be nominating their local favorites as we share this link on our social media avenues.

The businesses with the most nominations will be announced as finalists. (We will announce the top three from each Triad area.) In order to keep our nomination categories as concise as possible, we group cities into three areas.

Triad areas will be grouped as follows: 
Greensboro, Burlington & Surrounding Areas
Kernersville, High Point & Surrounding Areas
Winston-Salem, Clemmons & Surrounding Areas

Once the finalists are announced, voting will begin. The entry with the most votes will be announced as the winner of their category at the end of the contest. Winners will receive a digital seal and a printable seal to display as their badge of honor for taking 1st place in the 2018 Triad Moms on Main Choice Awards!
