4393 Awards

Who rocks your world? Nothing compares to … who? Who’s simply the best?

It’s Valentine’s Day, and nominations are now open for the fifth annual 4393 Awards, a reader survey sponsored by the Stowe Reporter, Waterbury Record and News & Citizen to honor the best in our area.

Readers will help shape the survey by nominating their favorite restaurants, shops, local heroes — nearly 100 categories in all.

Nominations are open through the end of March. Official voting will begin April 18 and close at the stroke of midnight on May 30.

Participating is easy; here’s how to do it:

• Write in your favorites on the survey printed in the Feb. 14 issue of the Stowe Reporter — and drop it in the mail to the Stowe Reporter, P.O. Box 489, Stowe, VT 05672. Or, pick up or drop off a survey at our offices in Stowe (49 School St.) or Morrisville (92 Lower Main St.).

• Fill out the online nomination survey at surveymonkey.com/r/4393nomination2019.

We’ve included last year’s top winners in each category, who will also appear on the official voting survey. This nomination period is your chance to write in new names, so if you want to be on the list of finalists, spread the word!

The awards honor the 4,393-foot summit of Mount Mansfield, the highest point in Vermont. There’s no higher honor than that! The contest encompasses Stowe, Morrisville, Waterbury, Cambridge, Johnson and the other communities where Mansfield looms the largest.

Winners will be announced July 11 in a special section published in the Stowe Reporter, Waterbury Record, and the News & Citizen, and distributed through the fall at select retail outlets. An electronic version of the section will live online until next year’s winners are announced.

Each winner will receive a certificate, and advertisers — both winners and nominees — can use the 4393 logo in their advertising. Questions: news@stowereporter.com.
