One of my favorite posts of the year: the 2020 WIDA Awards! Yes, our hindsight is officially 20/20 and there’s no better way to shake the January blahs than to celebrate others!
This is the 2nd Annual WIDA Awards all about rural Pottawattamie County! The purpose is to recognize people, places, and businesses in rural Pott. Co. because let’s face it: it’s easy to take people and things for granted! With that in mind, we ask you to vote for your faves! Yes, they have to be in rural Pott. Co. but that’s the only rule! The lists are not comprehensive, we just used names mentioned last year. If there’s a better answer, give it! We are always looking for new information!
All category winners will receive big shout-outs in our upcoming WIDA newsletter and on social media!
By voting (that means completing the survey), you are entered for the $25 gift card to The Dew Drop Inn in McClelland! One lucky winner will get $25 to grab burgers and beers at The Dew Drop! Just fill out the survey by midnight Tuesday, January 12th!
We’ve changed up some of the categories to fit the crazy year we had! We hope it brings you a little happiness to think through your favorites and the good cheer lets our businesses know that we support local!
Here are the categories you’ll be voting on:
Best Place to Take the Family during COVID
Best Place to Get Exercise in rural Pott. Co.
Best New Business (that opened in 2020 – if we missed one, be sure to write it in!)
Best Long-Time Business (any business that’s been in business 25 years or more)
Place with the Friendliest Staff
Best COVID Pivot
Best Kept Secret/Hidden Gem of Pott. Co.
Not sure which WIDA towns are rural Pott. Co. – let me help you!
Go VOTE here!
And thanks for helping us celebrate all that Pott. Co. has to offer!
