Now’s the time to nominate for Best of the Inland NW

Your favorite coffee shop, hair salon or chiropractic clinic (or provider of any number of goods and services in dozens of other categories) can be named the Best in the Inland Northwest — and you can nominate and vote for them.

Click on the Best of the Inland NW banner at the top of our website,, or on the Lewiston Tribune or Moscow-Pullman Daily News websites, to see a list of categories and start nominating. Nominations close Dec. 20, so be sure to start making yours soon.

This sets up your local go-to businesses for the voting round, in February, when the top five nominees from each category will vie for finalist and winner status.
And nominating your favorites could net you a reward too: Readers who make nominations in 25 or more categories will be entered to win a $250 gift card. We’ve received more than 4,000 nominations from more than 500 individuals so far.

Ultimately, the area businesses you choose could be crowned Best in the Inland Northwest because you took the time to nominate them.

We’re looking forward to seeing our readers’ top choices — from pet groomers to brew pubs — celebrated and learning about new businesses to try out in the process.
