The Win-dex Awards give you a chance to pick a business that deserves a pat on the back for looking good.
In the past seven years, the Win-dex Awards have recognized almost 50 local businesses that make the extra effort to present attractive and inviting appearances. The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce and Keep Liberty Beautiful sponsor the program to recognize businesses in our county that make the extra effort to keep their businesses attractive and inviting. These quarterly awards are our way of acknowledging these eye-catching businesses in our community.
These businesses are run by people who have figured out that attractive appearances make a statement about the kind of business that they are. They can draw more customers and help to create a positive work environment. Attractive and successful businesses draw more new businesses to our community because they make our whole community look good. More businesses mean more good jobs and a healthier economy for our community.
We are accepting nominations through Sept. 30, so take a look around and consider the following questions as you determine what business you would like to nominate:
• Is the exterior clean and litter-free?
• Is the landscape well-maintained?
• Is the building exterior attractive and not in need of repair?
• Is the right of way mowed and litter free?
• Is the sidewalk and parking area clean and maintained?
• Are there attractive plantings decorating the exterior?
• Have they recently upgraded or renovated?
• Is the entryway inviting?
An additional point that could be considered:
• Is the business a good citizen that works to maintain the roadway or frontage of their property?
• What sets this business apart from others?
We also take into consideration whether these businesses are active in local programs, such as Adopt Liberty and municipal cleanups, which promote a clean community. That is a plus to us!
Nomination forms are at the Keep Liberty Beautiful office, 101 N. Commerce St. in Hinesville, or call 884-2743, or go to the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce office (368-4445) at 425 W. Oglethorpe Highway in Hinesville.
You also can email KLB at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish, you can email your information directly by including all of the information requested on the form. Remember that your reason for nominating a business is a crucial part of the judging of the awards, so make sure that you fully explain why this business is deserving of this recognition. Your vote counts!
