It's that time of year again to help give your favorite places and things in Lawrence the recognition they deserve.
Voting for the Best of Lawrence contest, sponsored by Lawrence.com and the Journal-World, is officially open. In the 117 categories, you'll find opportunities to vote on almost any service or community fixture you can think of: barber, restaurant, bookstore, pharmacy, flower shop, local band, hiking and biking trails, kids clothing stores, local events, teachers and more.
Some categories will allow voters to write in their votes, while others will have a list of nominees. If there is a place or thing in Lawrence you've been dying to tell people about, now is your chance.
Just head over to www.bestoflawrence.com, where votes will be accepted through April 11. The results will be published in a glossy, coffee-table-worthy magazine in the Journal-World on June 15.
If you own or operate a business and would like a "Vote for Us for Best of Lawrence" poster to hang in your establishment, contact Colleen Brady, multimedia and sales manager for The World Company, at 832-7111.
