Siouxland's Choice Awards 2017

After countless hours spent crunching numbers and tallying votes, The Weekender staff can finally breathe a sigh of relief and release the 2017 winners of the Siouxland’s Choice Awards.

This year, we tried to focus on improving our annual readers’ voted list with an emphasis on ridding the Choice Awards of its unpopular categories and replacing them with more exciting varieties to choose from.

We also aimed to update our online ballots, which received some complaints the previous year for their inability to include crucial categories for voting. The Weekender crew was very happy to nip that in the bud as soon as the Choice Awards were released this year. 

As a result, we feel that this year’s poll accurately represents our current Siouxland culture. You will still see some of the regular winners of longstanding categories, but you will also notice a few upsets and new names listed.

We encourage you to not only see who won the No. 1 spot, but also check out who placed as runners-up. Why? Because these places will likely make for some stiff competition in the following years.

The Weekender staff wants to thank you all for voting in this year’s Siouxland’s Choice Awards. Without you guys, we wouldn’t be sitting at our desks counting every single ballot while slowly drifting into insanity… But no hard feelings. All is forgiven. 

Enjoy the 2017 Siouxland’s Choice Awards! See you next year!
