Schedule for 'Best of Windham' Tournament

Check out when you can vote for your favorite businesses in town.

Editor's Note: There is no restriction to the amount of categories that businesses can be entered in, if that business falls under that particular type.

Should a business win multiple categories, it will only be moved on to the second round once, to keep the overall tournament fair.


We have officially released the schedule for our "Best of Windham" business tournament, with the first round lasting until May 21.

The businesses have been separated into 12 categories, with the final category being a Best of the Rest roundup of businesses that we either missed or that didn't fit into the first 11. 

Check out the schedule below as well as the attached flyer, which will be handed out to as many local businesses as possible within the next week.

Hi MaryAnn, Thank you as well for the feedback. As mentioned, I had to keep things to 12 categories, meaning some had to be left out. I worked out these categories with the Community Dev. Dept., and we determined that these were the best options. The "best of the rest" category was a way of accomodating all of those who couldn't fit into the first 11, so all of the B2B's, realtors, and others will be in that voting on May 21.
