The nomination period for the 2020 Idaho’s Best Awards is over, and the response was incredible!
The community showed their support for their favorite businesses with a tsunami of nominations…We were blown away as they came in by the thousands!
But it’s not over yet!
Nominations are just the beginning. The companies with the most nominations in each category will move on to the voting round, where the community can choose the cream of the crop.
We will publish nominations when voting begins on October 14th. Voting will take place through October 31st. Voting is done online on this website. Anyone with a valid Idaho address and a mobile phone can vote for their favorite companies. To retain the most reliable results, participants are restricted to one vote per category.
What Makes Idaho’s Best Different
The Idaho’s Best contest is different because it’s not just about the votes. The community has been recommending their favorite businesses all year by leaving reviews on Google and Yelp.
That’s why Idaho’s Best factors in online reviews from the previous 12 calendar months, up to October 31, 2019. Your overall rating and the number of 5-star reviews your business has earned on Google and Yelp are factored in with the number of votes received during the contest.
Number of Votes + Number of 5-star Reviews + Average Rating = Score
The higher your rating and the more 5-star reviews you have, the better your chances of winning. That means that even if you didn’t get the most votes, you could still win by having a great online reputation. Alternatively, a business that doesn’t have as many reviews as they’d like still has a great chance of winning if they receive a lot of votes during the contest.
How do I know if my company was nominated?
If your business received enough support, we’ll be notifying you shortly about your nomination. This will include instructions for claiming your nomination, details about the contest, and resources to help you pick up more votes.
If you think you were likely one of the top ten nominees in your category, you can get a head start by contacting us to provide your business details and point of contact for the contest.
