Frequently Asked Questions
My business was not nominated. Can I still participate by having a booth at the event?
Yes! Any business may have booth space at the event. Only the top 5 nominees in each category are eligible to compete for the "Best of" title. In fact, many businesses participate that were not nominated to get exposure to the 4,000 plus people that attend.
How can I add a category for my business?
Categories are added and removed each spring based on the prior years participation. The committee takes suggestions based on feedback and the number of local businesses that would be able to participate in the event. If you would like to submit a category suggestion, please submit a comment.
My business does not fall into any of the categories. Can my business still be a sponsor?
Absolutely! Every year we have multiple event sponsors that do not compete in the voting competition. As a sponsor, there are many benefits including high visibility marketing opportunities.
My business won. Can I use the Best of Clarksville star logo in my advertising?
Congratulations, and yes! If you need a high resolution file of the logo, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Why was my business not nominated?
The top 5 nominees are calculated entirely by the votes cast by the public during the nomination process. Nominations are made during the month of June on ClarksvilleNow.com. The top 5 for each category become the nominees to compete for the "Best of" title in October.
