Best of Summerlin poll kicks off

The Best of Summerlin competition kicked off earlier this month with 750 nominations pouring in for such categories as Best Family-Friendly Restaurant, Best Park and Best Small Retail Business. Voting is now open with three finalists named in each category. While residents have once again named some all-time favorites, new names have appeared on the list as the master-planned community’s neighborhood amenities continues to grow.

“With the opening of Downtown Summerlin and a number of other businesses throughout the master-planned community, a new collection of contenders for the Best of Summerlin competition joined the ballot this year,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, director of marketing, Summerlin.

Any Southern Nevada resident was eligible to make nominations, but finalists are required to be located in Summerlin. In addition to the categories listed above, others include Best Golf Course, Best Restaurant for a Celebration and Best Community Event.

“This competition allows us to showcase and celebrate the venues, facilities, restaurants and other popular places and amenities that make Summerlin such a great place to live,” Bisterfeldt said. “The Best of Summerlin competition is especially meaningful because it’s the voting public who decides the winners. And winners are proud to showcase their Best of Summerlin designation all year long.”

Voting for Best of Summerlin 2015 is open until 3 p.m. Oct. 9 at Summerlin.com. Winners will be announced at the Summerlin Festival of Arts main stage in Downtown Summerlin Oct. 11 at 3:15 p.m. Throughout the voting period, Summerlin’s Instagram page will feature “The Adventures of Summerlin Sam,” a fun campaign in which the community’s loveable jackrabbit mascot Summerlin Sam visits every finalist and posts a photo to Instagram.
