Nominate your favorite businesses: Reader Rankings 2018

Nominations are open for our 2018 Reader Rankings program!

Do you know a business that you think deserves to be recognized for its industry excellence and contributions in Central Pennsylvania?

Through the newly extended deadline of April 18, you can nominate one or more businesses for our annual Reader Rankings program.

All qualifying businesses that are nominated — and are based or operating within Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry and/or York counties — will be able to compete.

Nominations will only be accepted through this Google Form. Please enter a valid email address and proceed through to the categories in which you would like to nominate one or several businesses.

There is no limit to the number of businesses you can nominate. You may nominate one business in a single category or various businesses in every category. But make sure you submit nominations no later than the newly extended deadline on April 18. Don’t miss your chance to nominate your favorite local businesses for their chance to be recognized in the Business Journal’s 2018 Reader Rankings.

On April 23, readers will be able to vote for the nominated businesses to be ranked among the region’s best. Those results will be published in a supplement to the June 29 edition of the Central Penn Business Journal.
