The editors at the NEG have done the tallying and we now have the results of the Northfield Entertainment Guide and Locally Grown readers’ poll of the Best of Northfield 2009 (4-page PDF). (The official announcement was made today at 7:45 am when Mr. NEG, Rob Schanilec and I announced the winners on KYMN Radio 1080 with Jeff Johnson.)
The Feb. 2010 issue of the Northfield Entertainment Guide (PDF) includes the results and is now available throughout Northfield, and in Flash format on the NEG site. Rob writes in the intro to the Best of 2009 section:
Here it is, loyal Entertainment Guide readers, the long-awaited results to Northfield’s Best of 2009! Our dedicated team of vote counters was wowed by the number of responses we received, but not surprised by the varieties of winners you found for each category. It confirms our belief that Northfield is a talent-filled town with delights to be found around each and every corner.
Though some categories were close, a winner shone through in each and we present them here, with the steady runners-up in italics just behind. Looking at the field of choices, one thing became quite clear to us: the true winner in this poll is the town of Northfield. Congratulations to everyone involved, and here’s to another year!
