I would like to take this opportunity to introduce something new and exciting happening this year in Trinity County. It is sponsored by this newspaper, powered by all of you, and will take place online at easttexasnews.com and in print.
I am referring to the 2023 Best of Trinity County, Readers’ Choice Awards.
It all begins in June when each of you can go online to our contest tab during phase one of the competition and nominate your favorite businesses, non-profits, and individuals in a variety of different categories. Everyone is encouraged to go online daily during June to nominate your favorites. This is a great opportunity to support each other, encourage each other, and promote each other and all the wonderful things we have to offer in Trinity County. What an honor it will be to be NOMINATED Best of Trinity County by your friends and neighbors.
During the month of July, the highest number of nominations (up to five total) in each category will move into the second phase of the contest and become a FINALIST. Again, the community will be encouraged to go online daily to vote for your favorites out of all the finalists in each category.
In August, the WINNER in each category, phase three of the competition, will be announced in a special Best of Trinity County section printed in the newspaper, and the contest results will also be available online at easttexasnews.com.
Remember, nominations will be open June 1 – June 30 for phase one of the Readers’ Choice Best of Trinity County contest.
