To answer the obvious question … No, Best of the Springs winners don’t have to be located in Colorado Springs. The contest is for the entire Pikes Peak region.
Members of the community will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite nominees in more than 250 categories, including dining, arts and entertainment, city life, family, sports and recreation and shopping. Voting runs from January 3 to February 16.
Gold, silver and bronze winners will be unveiled 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. April 17 at a launch party at the Pikes Peak Center. The event is open to the public.
