Sponsors of 2016 ‘Best of West Hartford’ Invite Everyone to Participate in Nominating

This year’s hyperlocal, people’s choice ‘Best of West Hartford’ contest has some wonderful sponsors, and we have also added some new categories to the nomination process this year.

BOWH-2016logoBy Joy Taylor and Tom Hickey

Our restaurants, stores, services, and other businesses often win awards in regional “best of” competitions.

But this contest is different.

As we did last year for the first time, We-Ha.com and West Hartford Magazine have created a true “readers’ choice” survey called the “Best of West Hartford.” You can tell by its name that, like We-Ha.com and West Hartford Magazine, it is a “hyperlocal” contest. The businesses must be in town, but you don’t have to live in West Hartford to participate in the nominating.

Based on some feedback from last year we expanded the categories, so if you are a business owner or a customer you will find a place to nominate your West Hartford favorites! The categories are listed below, and be sure to read all the way to the bottom for tips on sharing this contest.

This wouldn’t be possible without our 2016 sponsors, including:

Title Sponsors: JP Carroll Construction, Lux Bond & Green, The Mercy Community, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Sanditz Travel/Spa Soli and William Raveis Real Estate.

Gold Sponsor: Stanger & Associates

Silver Sponsors: Edward Connors Insurance Agency/Travelers, Kingswood Oxford, Oscars Tux/Argelia Bridal and Sheehan Hilborn Breen Funeral Home.

Bronze Sponsors: First Church West Hartford, Jeff Hodges Landscape Contractor, Merchant Solutions, NBC Connecticut, St. Brigid School, Taylor Rental Party Plus, West Hartford Chamber of Commerce and the Town of West Hartford.

Have fun, and don’t forget to spread the word and come back and vote once the nominations are in.  Read more about the nominating process here.
