It’s awards season, and we’re celebrating the very BEST in business! Have a favorite business in Orange or Chatham County that deserves special recognition for all that they do? Make sure you pick your faves for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce’s WCHL Chapelboro People’s Choice Awards!

We asked people to name their choices earlier this month, and now we need help to select only 5 finalists for each category!  Please select your favorite choices from the Runoff options starting March 24th to help determine who gets into the Top 5.  Vote in the Runoffs once per day until March 31st!

Finalists that have already been selected will be revealed when voting starts on April 6th so be sure to come back again and vote on a winner!  Winners will be announced at the Business Excellence Awards on May 19th.
