4393 Awards winners for 2019 to be announced in July

The 4393 Awards, a reader survey sponsored by the Stowe Reporter, Waterbury Record and News & Citizen to honor the best in our area, is now in its fifth year!

Readers helped shape the survey by nominating and voting for their favorite restaurants, shops, local heroes — about 100 categories in all!

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 18 in a special section published in the Waterbury Record, Stowe Reporter and News & Citizen, and distributed through the fall at select retail outlets.

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