Help us honor Tennessee’s Best. The 2023 Best of Tennessee Readers’ Choice Awards will recognize winners from across the Volunteer State in more than 25 individual categories. Just for nominating your favorites, you’ll be entered in a sweepstakes for great Tennessee-themed prizes.
Vote in as many or as few categories as you feel knowledgeable, but keep in mind that only ballots with 15 or more categories with at least one vote will be eligible for the prize drawing.
You can vote for up to three “Bests” in any given category. As an example, if you have a favorite state park in each region of the state — West, Middle and East — then you can vote for one in each. Be as specific as possible, and please include the towns where businesses or parks are located. Generic answers will not be counted. To celebrate the uniqueness of Tennessee, please exclude national franchises and chains (restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, etc.) from your responses.
No purchase necessary. One entry per person. Entry must be submitted no later than Sept. 30. • To be eligible for the prize drawings, ballots must have a “Best of Tennessee” vote in at least 15 categories. You can cast votes in any or all of the regions. • Drawing to be held on Friday, Dec. 16. Must be at least 18 years old to win. Grand-prize winners will be notified by mail. • Best of Tennessee results will be published in the January 2023 edition of The Tennessee Magazine. • Electric cooperative employees and their immediate families are not eligible for the prize giveaways. View the complete rules on the entry form.
You can vote online.
Winners will be chosen randomly from a drawing of all entries received. Three grand-prize packages will be awarded (one each from West, Middle and East Tennessee). Remember, you must vote in at least 15 categories to be eligible for the prize drawing.
Winners will receive a gift certificate courtesy of Tennessee State Parks to be applied toward a 2-night stay at a park cabin or inn. There are 21 Tennessee State Parks with cabins and four with inns. Visit www.tnstateparks.com for a complete list.
Each winner will receive a basket of farm-direct and locally made artisan foods from Pick Tennessee Products, a division of the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.
The Tennessee Magazine will award $250 to each winner to spend while you’re enjoying your state park visit.
