Best of the Best contest is underway

Our annual project to find the “Best of the Best” here in Brookhaven and Lincoln County is underway.

The 2019 Reader’s Choice contest began earlier this month and will wrap up Aug. 26. Readers will find a ballot in today’s edition of The Daily Leader and in future editions of the newspaper through the end of the contest. A ballot can also be found at www.dailyleader.com.

On the ballots, you can write in your favorite plumber, attorney or lunch spot — along with dozens of other categories.

Filling out a printed ballot will also put you in a drawing for $250 in cash.

The Business of the Year will also be selected. When voting for the business you consider to be above all the rest, look at their service, the helpfulness of employees and the business history.

All first place winners will receive a certificate declaring they are the best — as voted on by readers — in their respective categories. The top two in each category will also be featured in a special publication to be included in The Daily Leader.

To be eligible to win the cash, there are a few simple rules to follow:

• No copies of ballots will be accepted. It must be a ballot printed in The Daily Leader. Free ballots are available at the newspaper office at 128 North Railroad Ave. in Brookhaven.

• Name and address must be legibly printed for the ballot to be counted as valid.

• Ballot must be at least halfway filled in to be considered “complete.”

If you have a favorite business, help recognize them by voting in the contest.
