For the past 10 years, the Wenatchee World has held its World’s Best contest, celebrating the businesses, people and places that shape the Wenatchee Valley. Looking into year 11, we decided to shake things up a bit. We have changed the format to have a nomination round, letting the community fill in 5 nominees to each category and a voting round, deciding 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. 

While many of the categories are focused on the various types of businesses that provide services to the valley, there are also those categories that pull on your heartstrings. This is a chance to honor those special teachers and first responders, highlight your favorite places for art, hikes, and sunsets, and also dive into a number of other community based categories. 

Want to see the complete list and share in the excitement that this brings to our community? Voting is currently taking place and will be closed on May 8th.
