Reader's Choice 2018

Dear Readers:

Southern Maine is a wonderful destination for many vacationers. Before deciding to make Southern Maine our home more than two years ago, my wife and I explored York County and the surrounding areas to see the sites, taste the food, experience ocean life and visit several areas that make living here unique. In our travels, there were many little shops, food trucks and unique businesses that caught our attention. Being relatively new here, we want to know the best schools, doctors, professional services and so on. What better way than asking you?

Today, I have the pleasure of announcing the Third Annual Journal Tribune Readers’ Choice Awards. This is your opportunity as a reader to let us know where to find the best seafood, entertainment and schools, along with dozens of other businesses, services and more, in York County.


In addition to getting your opinion, we will have a drawing in which you will have the opportunity to win one of several $25 gift cards from local stores. All you have to do to be included in the drawing is fill out a ballot and vote for a minimum of 20 categories. Voting takes place now through Jan. 8 at 5 p.m. 


To vote online, simply select the categories in the ballot on the web site and click the vote button next to your favorite business or service. Don’t see your favorite listed? Type it in the suggestion box and click ‘vote’. Registered online users may vote once in each category, per day, during the nomination period of the contest. 

No purchase is required to vote. You are encouraged to make your choices known by voting early and voting often. The limit is one vote per category, per person, per day, with a minimum of 20 categories filled out. The 2018 Readers’ Choice awards contest is for York County only. Watch for our special section announcing the winners on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018.
