The Austin Daily Herald has opened up the nomination round of its annual Best of Mower County.

This contest is an important part of what we do down here, and in many ways gets to the heart of a healthy community. This isn’t an agency or group recognizing a business, individual or organization through the nomination. This is the people themselves. Those people who visit local businesses or are our neighbors and friends. 

It also creates a fun kind of competition as you, the voters, through your nominations, seek to recognize those around you.

As already stated, the nomination round has begun and will go through May 11, 2024. The voting round will be available May 29-July 3. A ballot will also be available in our print publication on June 8 and the winners will be announced on July 24.

One random participant will be drawn from the nomination round and one random participant will be drawn from the voting round to each win a one year digital membership to the Herald.

We urge each and every one of you to take part in this competition to recognize those who would be crowned Best of Mower County.
