Mayor's Choice Award

Program Overview

The "Mayor’s Choice Business Award" program was developed by the Village’s C.O.N.E.C.T Committee to recognize outstanding achievement in the business community within the Village. Nominate your favorite business for the Mayor's Choice Business of the Year Award. This award honors contributions made by Hanover Park businesses benefiting our community.

All residents and businesses are encouraged to nominate outstanding local businesses. Businesses are encouraged to nominate themselves. Entrants must be located in Hanover Park and will be judged in several categories including, but not limited to:

  • Community Involvement
  • Excellence in Customer Service
  • Positive Image and Appearance

Award Categories

As of 2013 there are now two award categories:

  • For businesses employing over 50 employees
  • For businesses employing 50 or less employees

People's Choice Award

In addition, once nominated, businesses will also be eligible to win the People's Choice Award, conducted by the Clerk's Office. In December, residents and businesses will be able to text their vote for their favorite nominated business. Stay tuned for more information on the People's Choice voting process after the nomination deadline.
