Who do parents turn to when they want to find the most romantic date night restaurant, the most awesome dance lessons for their kids, or Douglas County's best-kept secret? Well, Macaroni Kid and other parents, of course!
Help us recognize the most loved local businesses for kids and families!
|NOMINATE TODAY FOR A CHANCE TO WIN!|
Don’t keep great local businesses a secret — pick your favorites and share them with us!
The nomination period for the 9th annual Macaroni KID Douglas County Gold Daisy Awards is open from Wednesday, September 8 through Sunday, September 26, 2021.
We'll be giving away a $50 gift card during each week of the nomination period (for a total of three gift cards). Subscribers who nominate in at least ten categories will be automatically entered.
We will draw the winners on September 13, 20, and 27. The sooner you nominate, the more chances you'll have to win!
|BUSINESSES CAN WIN TOO!|
The winning business in each category will receive a free one-year listing in the Macaroni KID business directory, a digital badge to use on their website and social media pages, and a certificate to display at their location — plus the honor of knowing local families consider them one of the best!
The business with the most total nominations and votes in any one category will win a $500 advertising package.
If you are a business owner and would like help getting the word out to your customers, send an email to email@example.com and we will provide you with a complete marketing toolkit.
