First annual Best of Wetaskiwin Readers’ Choice Awards

Enter to win a $200 gift card for Canadian Tire.

The Pipestone Flyer is pleased to announce Wetaskiwin’s first annual Best of Wetaskiwin Readers’ Choice Awards!

Here is your chance to show your support for the outstanding services and businesses that make Wetaskiwin a terrific place to live and to show your support for local businesses, eateries, organizations and services.

When you submit a business or service for a category, you will be entered to win a $200 Canadian Tire gift card. You can also vote daily to show support for your favourite business or vendor!

Voting is currently underway and a special print on Oct. 29, 2020 will feature the category winners for the Best of Wetaskiwin Readers’ Choice Awards 2020.

There are plenty of categories to vote for including Favourite Place for a First Date, Best Hidden Gem, Best Hair Salon and Who is Your COVID Hero?, among many others.

“We are really excited about our Best of Wetaskiwin section this year,” says Christina Komives, Publisher of the Pipestone Flyer.

“2020 has been full of uncertainty and caused many of our small businesses to find creative new ways to conduct business. Many business owners have found their special way to shine during dark times and our residents have been able to benefit and enjoy this creativity. We want the community to know about that.”

Other categories in contention range from Best Place to Get Breakfast, Best Weekday Lunch and Best Cup of Coffee, to Favourite Place to Walk and Favourite Winter Activity.

The closing date for the contest is Sept. 27, 2020.

“This is a great opportunity to support our local businesses. Our community is defined by our small businesses,” says Komives.

“I hope the results of this contest also give readers information about some of the unique things our great businesses have to offer. Hopefully it will encourage people to shop at a business that they may not have known much about previously.”
