Nominations for the 2019 Best of Dawson awards open at 12:01 a.m. Dec. 1 and will remain open through Dec. 31.

We want to hear from you: nominate your favorite business, organization, workplace, restaurant or person in each of our over 200 categories, including best school, family restaurant and civic organization.

Readers can nominate a person or business at Nominations are moderated to ensure a business is in the correct category and that it is located in Dawson County.

Any businesses not nominated by 11:59 p.m. Dec. 31 will not be eligible for the voting period, which will begin Jan. 7 and run through Feb. 3.

Winners will be announced in a special publication magazine that will insert into the Dawson County News on March 27.
