This is the sixth year the Pontiac Journal will highlight the best of MRC Pontiac’s and the Municipality of Pontiac’s businesses by giving our readers the chance to vote for their favourites in the Readers’ Choice awards. For 2018 there are 38 categories covering Best Restaurants, Best professionals, Best Activities, and Best Stores.  There are also categories that recognize our many “unsung heros”: The Best Service Club or Non-Profit Organization; Best Customer Service for a Sales Oriented business and a Service Oriented business; and Best New Business. For the first time, we have a special feature category to recognize a business that has been serving our area for over 15 years:  Best Longstanding Business.
The Readers’ Choice is easy, and fun; it’s a great way to salute all the men and women who work so hard to bring us the products and services that we need, right here in the Pontiac. What better way to support your local economy than by shopping locally and recognizing the businesses and their owners who do such a great job?
Simply check out the ad on page 9, where all the categories are listed; you can fill
it in and mail it to us or go on-line to www.journalpontiac.com where you
will see a link at the top right of the home page to access the ballot and send it to
us directly.
Thanks to the generosity of our contest’s sponsors (Pontiac Conference Centre, CHIP 101.9 FM, SADC Pontiac, and the Caisse populaire de Fort-Coulonge) we will also have an evening to celebrate the top 3 nominees in each category, on September 26th. It’s here the winners will be announced and all nominees receive an award certificate—readers will have noted these proudly displayed around the Pontiac when they visit nominated businesses. 
The winners for each category will receive a feature article in the Journal, starting with our Special Awards Booklet to be published in October; business stories will continue to be published until the end of the year. 
Don’t miss out!  Make your vote count!  Plus, you could win a $100 VISA gift card for simply casting your vote and nominating your favourites!  Go to www.journalpontiac.com and cast your vote RIGHT NOW!
