What is it?
The 2013 Best of the Lake readers survey is now open. Vote for your favorite Lake of the Ozarks businesses, services, events, people and entertainment. Winners will be listed in the May/June 2013 issue of Lake Lifestyles magazine, which will be on stands in early May. All first-place winners will be contacted shortly after the survey closes.
Last year more than 9,000 votes were cast in the Best of the Lake survey. Results will not be announced publicly until May. All first-place winners will be contacted shortly after the survey closes.
How it works
The online survey will be taken in two phases.
Open voting: The first round of voting will open February 6 and will close at 5 p.m. on February 18. During that time period, you can select from the list of nominees given in each question or fill in your own response. All write-in votes will be counted. Results are collected to compile a list of finalists.
Voting only on the finalists: Each category will be narrowed down to just the finalists (top 5 or so picks in each category). Another round of voting on ONLY these finalists will take place and will be available at 5:01 p.m. February 18. The one that receives the most number of votes for each category will win. Voting closes at 5 p.m. on March 1.
