Welcome to the definitive "Best of" directory of leading local businesses throughout Shiawassee County; the Shiawassee A-LIST! 

The A-LIST was determined exclusively and entirely by visitors of the local news websites, Corunna Now, Durand Now, Owosso Now, Perry Pulse and Uplift Shiawassee, through an initial five-week nomination period and two subsequent two-week voting periods.
The process began January 1st 2018 and culminated April 2nd 2018, with the reveal of winners in these 61 separate categories.
Besides the serious bragging rights that come with a win, we're honored to offer our A-LIST winners a full week of advertising across The Durand Now Network of local news websites, delivering news stories to an average 20,000 unique visitors each month, at no cost.
 
A total of 144,477 vote submissions were received, each with a possible 61 individual votes, for a grand total of 544,886 votes!!  That's almost FOUR TIMES as many submissions and votes than last year!  

This is the 2nd Annual Shiawassee A-LIST, presented lovingly by Uplift Shiawassee.

Though efforts were made to protect the integrity of the voting process, we detected, in a few isolated cases, the possible use of bots.  We determined through calculations in which the votes in question were removed from overall scoring, that the votes in question did not change the outcome of the final result.  We also detected an unauthorized entry (hack) in which a single vote was cast for a business not listed among the finalists.  This intrusion did not impact the outcome of the final result.  The use of bots and hacking to gain entry into or obtain votes in the contest were not explicitly prohibited in A-LIST contest rules.  We will amend rules for future contests and are exploring new methods of protecting the integrity of the Shiawassee A-LIST and other future contesting.
