The Hilly Awards are back and are bigger than ever. With a whole new list of categories, even more businesses will have a chance to win an award. Your official voting ballot can be found here.
Voting will remain open today through September 20, 2015. The votes will be tallied and winners will be announced at the Hilly Awards Gala on Saturday, November 7, 2015. The party will include food and beverages from your favorite Hill restaurants, so don’t miss out! Buy your ticket before August 31 for an early bird discounted price of just $50.
NEW THIS YEAR:
*VOTE ONCE and you’ll be done. Nominations and voting has been combined into one smooth process!
*ONE CATEGORY PER WINNER! For more inclusion of businesses, the 2015 contest rules limit winners to a single category. In the event that a business receives votes in more than one category, the decision will be based on the category receiving the greater number of votes. Vote with this in mind!!
*NEW CATEGORIES for greater inclusion by more businesses, large and small! (MUST have a business presence on Capitol Hill to be counted. Read all the rules.)
