The nomination process for the Polk County Enterprise’s 2023 Best of Polk County Reader’s Choice Awards will end on Sept. 30. The nomination period began Sept. 1 and since that time, over 42,000 nominations have been received.

The annual awards process provides an opportunity to recognize local businesses, professionals and non-profits.

This fourth year of the annual contest has seen changes. All nominations and voting are being conducted online and no paper ballots are being accepted. To participate, go to the website easttexasnews.com and click on the Contests tab. To register only involves using an email address.

If a specific category is not listed, please email the information to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If a person or business does not belong in the category in which it has been nominated, it will be weeded out before going into the voting phase.

The 2023 Best of Polk County Readers’ Choice Awards is occurring in three distinct phases this year. The first phase is the nomination process and individuals may nominate their favorite local businesses up to once a day per email address. The month-long nomination process will determine the finalists who will be eligible for Best of Polk County.

The top eight nominees in each category will enter the second phase which will run from Oct. 1-31. During this phase voters will have the opportunity to select their favorite among the top eight in each category and will be allowed to vote up to once a day per email address.

The third phase is the culmination of the annual readers’ choice awards when the winners of each category are recognized in a special section that will be included in the Dec. 3 issue of the Polk County Enterprise.

    There should be a Resale Shop category.  I voted for Thrift 'n Gift Resale Shop in Antiques because there was no Resale Shop category
