Beginning in March, we’re asking readers to help us find the best of the best in Northeast Ohio when it comes to family fun.
The Northeast Ohio Parent Choice Awards seeks to gather the opinions of local parents on everything family-friendly in the region. Top vote-getters will be published in the July 2019 issue of Northeast Ohio Parent magazine.
To allow for more input from you, our readers, the nomination period will be open from March 1-30, during which you’ll have the chance to name your favorite businesses, attractions, family services, and more. In May, after we’ve compiled the most popular nominees, readers will get a chance to vote for their favorite in each category.
There’s something in it for you, too! Participants who make nominations between March 1-30 will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift card to Melt Bar & Grilled.
Please help us make this year’s Parent Choice Awards the best yet!
