Summerlin, Las Vegas’ largest master-planned community, a development of The Howard Hughes Corporation (HHC), launched its 2014 Best of Summerlin recognition campaign Monday. A fun and interactive way to showcase Summerlin’s robust amenities, this exciting competition has become a popular way to celebrate Summerlin icons, landmark places and popular venues for their contributions to the community.
Through Oct. 31, community and valley residents can nominate their favorite Summerlin restaurants, parks and businesses for categories including Best Locally-Owned Restaurant, Best Community Event, Best Golf Course and Best School Spirit. In total there are 12 categories.
“Summerlin is bubbling with activity as Downtown Summerlin and other new amenities open this year,” said Danielle Bisterfeldt, director of marketing, Summerlin. “The Best of Summerlin is a great way to acknowledge and reward the locations and people who are actively enhancing the lifestyle promoted here in this master-planned community. We saw tremendous growth in the number of people who participated in last year’s competition and businesses took great pride in being named finalists and winners.”
Nominations can be made at www.summerlin.com. Anyone can submit nominations but all locations must be within the Summerlin borders for consideration. Nominees will be announced Nov. 3 followed by online voting through Nov. 21. Join Summerlin on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates and to follow The Adventures of Summerlin Sam as the community’s jackrabbit mascot visits each finalist and features them on social media. Winners will be announced online on Monday, Nov. 24.
