Poll Open Now
May 5 – May 26
This is your time to vote on the nominations and help decide who or what wins each poll question.
On or around this date winners will be announced. We’re still ironing out the details of what this looks like and what sort of fancy certificates and such businesses get, but feel free to share your ideas!
1.) This poll encompasses June 2020 – May 2021, use those dates to make your choices. If an event was cancelled due to COVID that is annual event and likely to return, you may still vote for it or write it in.
2.) In general, unless stated as a regional question or it would otherwise be over-limiting, nominations are limited to a 10 mile radius of the Spring Green area. If regional or over-limited, feel free to nominate within Sauk, Richland and Iowa counties. Exceptions may be made where there are strong ties to the Valley.
3.) You do not need to fill out each category/question. Filling out the entire poll will take around 10 minutes. Feel free to fill in answers under “other” — popular answers may be added to the poll as options.
4.) YOU MUST BE A RESIDENT OF THE AREA OR HAVE STRONG TIES TO IT.
YOU MAY ONLY VOTE ONCE.
We will identify and eliminate fraudulent votes. Your vote will remain anonymous.
5.) More information and tools are available for businesses and those interested to share the poll and get out the word and drum up support for their favorites below. But no funny business! Literally. Exchanging free or discounted goods and services for votes is prohibited.
