Columbus Parent's Best of Columbus

Staff Writer
Columbus Parent

It's once again time for Columbus parents to weigh in and let us know who's the best at what they do in central Ohio! The 2014 Columbus Parent Best of Columbus contest opens for online voting at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 3, and voting will continue until 12 noon Tuesday, July 8. The winners and runners-up will be featured in our September issue.

This year we have 75 categories in which to vote, including longtime faves like "Best Library Story Time" and "Best Outdoor Playground," and we've added some new categories like "Best Drop-In Art Studio" and "Best Frozen Yogurt." And it's amazing how many new play café nominees there are now in that category!

You can vote at As always, you may vote once per email address (and if our system discerns a pattern of voting irregularity, we reserve the right to disqualify those votes).

If you are one of our nominees or would like to mount a write-in candidacy, you can also download "Vote for Us" artwork from the contest site. These include PDFs you can print to use as small fliers or handouts, or use on your social-media accounts.

We also, thanks to a great suggestion last year from one of our nominees, make the whole ballot available as a resource you can print off and use all year for ideas about where to eat, play and buy the products your family needs.

Find all of this PLUS log your votes!
