Nominations for this year’s BOBs awards are closed and the voting stage has now begun.
The top nominees in over 250 categories have been selected and paNOW readers can now click here to view the nominees and vote for their favourite person, place or business.
This is the third year for the Prince Albert BOBs awards and similar to previous years the excitement and interest to get involved was evident. In 2014 the nomination stage received approximately 8,000 nominations. In 2015 that number was significantly higher with over 30,000 nominations. This year that number rose again to almost 58,000 nominations received before the deadline of May 1.
With more than 250 categories the BOBs recognizes the finest of what Prince Albert and area has too offer. It is a great opportunity for local businesses, people, or community groups to promote themselves. This year the BOBs features all the same categories as previous years plus a few extra including: best school bus driver, best celebrity you would have dinner with, best car show, best new pick-up truck brand, best new business you would like to see come to Prince Albert, and the best things to see or do in downtown Prince Albert.

In past years the top nominees have gotten creative in getting the word out to better their chances to win by handing out flyers or creating contests and giveaways on social media. Similar to last year a media package can once again be downloaded from the paNOW website to help spread the word and help the top nominees get their customers, visitors, family and or friends excited about voting for them.
But businesses are not the only thing that people can vote for the BOBs are also an opportunity to nominate community groups, special places, or community members that they feel deserve to be recognized. Last year some deserving winners under Prince Albert’s local goodness category included: Malcolm Jenkins for Best Citizen, Marj Bodnerchuk for Best Volunteer and the Prince Albert Street Fair for best community event.
If you have been honoured with being a top nominee or if you know someone, someplace, or something that deserves to win then don’t wait and vote now.
Voting will continue until May 31. The 2016 BOBs winners will be announced June 3.
