Introducing Grande Prairie Family’s “Best of Grande Prairie” Awards

We’re looking for the Best of Grande Prairie!



What is the Best of Grande Prairie?

One of our favourite things here at Grande Prairie Family is connecting community members with the amazing businesses and services we have in town. And one question we get asked, over and over again, is “Can you recommend ABC?” or “I’m looking for a new XYZ, where should I go?” In our every day conversations, in Facebook groups, and via email, parents are looking to get tried and true recommendations from their peers. With that in mind, we’ve created the Grande Prairie Family’s “Best of Grande Prairie Awards”. We’re looking for our readers to nominate and vote for the best of the best in GP. When we’re done, we’ll have a list of the most recommended products, services, and businesses for you to reference all year long.

Here’s how it works:

  • We’ll be collecting nominations from August 10-September 10. On September 10, we’ll tally all of the nominations. The top 4 nominees in each category will be notified and added to the voting ballot. All top 4 nominees will receive a decal that they can place in their store window, which will let customers and clients know that they were nominated for a Grande Prairie Family’s Best of Grande Prairie award. The will also receive a custom graphic for their website or social media channels.
  • Each email address may submit ONE form. You may fill in one or all categories on the form.
  • Voting will be open from September 15-October 14. Each email address may submit one ballot.
  • Winners will be announced via Facebook Live and a blog post on October 15. Each winner will receive a custom “Grande Prairie Family’s Best of Grande Prairie Winner” decal, custom graphic, and framed certificate.
