Recognizing the area’s best people, places, and businesses
New London, CT – Voting in the 5th annual Best of Readers’ Choice Awards Contest (an online readers’ poll), presented by The Day and Atlantic Broadband, will be open until March 12th at 11:59 p.m. at  
The nomination round was open from January 1st – February 4th.  Individuals had the opportunity to nominate their favorite people, places and businesses in southeastern Connecticut and southern Rhode Island in 260 categories including arts & entertainment, food & dining, the great outdoors, health & wellness, home & garden, lifestyle & beauty, pets, services, shopping, and weddings. Over 60,000 nominations were cast by over 13,000 individuals during that time. The top 5 entrants who received the most nominations in each category advanced to the voting round. 
Readers now have the opportunity to cast their votes for their favorite finalist in each category.  The winners will be announced in the Best of Magazine publishing in The Day on Saturday, April 20, 2019.
“The Best of contest is for our community,” said Jaclyn Nardone, marketing manager at The Day. “We hear from people all year long who are looking forward to the next year’s contest because it is their chance to let their friends, family and coworkers know who they think are the best people to work with, businesses to support, or places to see.  If you’re an individual or business who has won in the past, the honor brings extensive bragging rights with it: you won because the members of your community felt you were the best, and you can’t get that recognition anywhere else.”
