Best of Dayton: Our most popular new categories so far

For this year’s Best of Dayton, we introduced dozens of new categories to cover even more aspects of life in our area.

In our first week of nominations, we’ve already seen some strong competition.

Check out the list below to see if you want to add nominations, then go to the ballot to check out these and other new categories and old favorites.

We need your help with nominations because the number of times a person or place is nominated has the biggest influence on who becomes our finalists for voting that starts on Sept. 6. Nominations go through Monday, Aug. 22, and you can nominate once per day in each category.
