Nominate Your Site for People’s Choice “Site of the Year”

    Each year, Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area (SSNHA) celebrates the best in heritage development by presenting the “People’s Choice Site of the Year”. Voted on by the public, this special honor is presented to only one deserving SSNHA Partner Site.

The information you provide in the nomination will be used for promotion and seen by the public. All of the 115 designated Partner Sites are eligible to enter, though we ask that sites who have won the previous year take a one-year moratorium before entering again. Since you are the best advocate for your site, self-nominations are strongly encouraged.
