Get ready for another exciting year for the Best of Southwest Iowa competition! As we gear up for another year of honoring the finest businesses and individuals in the heart of Southwest Iowa, we’re thrilled to unveil a fresh look, an all-new user-friendly website, and some revamped rules.

The essence remains the same: celebrating and acknowledging the exceptional contributions of our local Southwest Iowa talents, all determined by the voices of our vibrant community. Whether you’re passionate about your favorite local eatery, shop, or the people who make a difference in your town, nominations are open to those who call Southwest Iowa home.

In this year’s competition, you’ll have the chance to cast your vote across a wide range of categories. New this year, you’ll only be able to vote once per category per email. This is a change from previous years where you could vote once a day per email.

Get ready to embrace a new era of Best of Southwest Iowa!
