Take survey and tell us about Hillsboro's Best

We all have those favorite places. Those preferred date spots, favorite restaurants or mechanics we're devoted to. Places we have gladly recommended to friends over the years.

Now, it's time to share the love.

Starting this week, the Hillsboro Tribune is launching its first ever Hillsboro's Best awards. It's a truly massive online survey aimed at finding your favorite people, places and things to do across the city, covering everything from best sushi restaurant, bar and date-night spot to best real estate agent and Christmas tree farm.

We want to know where you love to eat, shop and play. We want to know local volunteers, teachers and firefighters who are going above and beyond for their communities. We want to know where to buy the best beer in town, and which of the city's art galleries is a must visit.

The survey is available on the Tribune's Facebook page, Facebook.com/HillsboroTribune and on Twitter at Twitter.com/HillsboroTrib.

The poll launched Tuesday and we've already gotten some great responses from the community. We'll take submissions until 5 p.m., Friday, Sept. 16.

We'll tabulate the results and announce the winners in a special magazine we'll put together in November with write-ups on the winners.

And to make things interesting, you'll also be entered into a contest to win $100. Just leave your name, phone number and email address on the survey and we'll enter you into the drawing.

You can vote and enter once each day, so be sure to visit the survey often!

OK, here's the fine print: You must be 18 or older to win and employees of the Hillsboro Tribune or its parent company, Pamplin Media Group aren't eligible to win the prize money.
