2nd Annual Local’s Choice Awards

Local Happenings Magazine continues to work hard to help you find out about the best events in the area and we are now rolling out our 2nd Annual Local’s Choice Awards so that you can help us to identify some of the best businesses and people in the area so that they can help all of us with our next happening. This is our official announcement of the 2nd Annual “Local Happenings Awards”. The awards issue where the winners will be announced will be the February – March 2013 edition.

We are inviting you the public to help with that. We have nominated a handful of businesses and people in 12 categories and we are asking you to vote for your favorites or add to our list by nominating your favorite in those categories. The 2 rules are:

The businesses nominated must be within the counties of Napa, Solano or Contra Costa Counties.

The businesses must have been in business since at least January 1, 2009 – as most new businesses fail in the first three years we want to focus on those companies that have withstood the test of time.

The voting and nominations will open up on our web site on September 1st 2012 and conclude on Sunday December 9th, 2012. You may cast your vote in the following ways:

On line at www.LocalHappeningsMagazine.com

E-mail to info@LocalHappeningsMagazine.com

Via fax – 707-557-3166

Regular mail  to Local Happenings Magazine, 207 Wallace Ave, Vallejo, CA 94590

If you fax, e-mail or mail your votes please include your name, address and e-mail address on your entry. We were going to post an official entry form on the web but if you could download that you could also just vote online – so there is no “official” ballot for votes or nominations. Please include “Local Happenings Awards” in the subject line of e-mails and at the top of faxes or letters.

Just like in Chicago you should vote early and often – you may vote once per day for your favorites so make sure to spread the word and help them to get selected!! We look forward to you helping us to select our winners and helping us to help you learn about some of these great businesses and people within our community.
