The Best of Columbia County allows county residents to make their voices heard in deciding the best of the best in a broad field of over 85 categories--including best bar, best burger, best plumber, best educator and best florist. The awards also provide winners with a yearlong opportunity to tout their goods or services in advertising as the 2018 award recipient.
The first round of voting will be a nomination period beginning April 1 through April 30. A finalist round of voting for the top three in each category will begin May 5 through May 31. Finalists will be announced during an Academy Award style show, held at the Columbia county fairgrounds in Chatham on June 22.
How lucky are we to have the opportunity every year to celebrate all that we do and all that we are? Each year we take time to nominate, vote for and honor the greatness in Columbia County. -Jeffrey C. Hunt
