11th Annual Waldo County Best of the Best & Business Showcase!

Welcome to the 12th annual Best of the Best of Waldo County – The People’s Choice. As the community takes this annual event under its wings, a real difference is made in the lives and future of its fellow residents. Over the past ten years, more than $72,000 has been raised for Waldo County scholarships.

Remember, each ballot must have at least 12 categories filled in and must include the voter’s name and address to be counted and validated. So, take a moment to consider your Waldo County favorites, fill out the ballot, and mail or drop it off at either the University of Maine Hutchinson Center or The Republican Journal in Belfast. Online voting opens in March at http://waldo.villagesoup.com/. Following the tabulation of votes, the public is invited to meet the winners on Wednesday, May 9th, 2018, from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm at the Crosby Center, 96 Church Street Belfast, ME. 

The 2018 Waldo County Best of the Best Showcase Gala is a free family event featuring a silent auction, lots of giveaways with food and refreshments offered by the winners in each food category.

All proceeds, 100% of the community’s contributions, go directly to scholarships for Waldo County students who enroll in classes at the Hutchinson Center. Scholarships make a difference in students’ lives allowing them to pursue and ultimately realize their dream of a college education.

The success of this event is a direct result of our community’s heartfelt involvement in making a difference in their neighbors’ lives.

Be sure to mark your calendar for this special event.

See you on the 9th of May!
