From the beginning, it was our hope to have your favorite local businesses get recognized for the hard work they put into developing the services that keep us coming back.  

Nominees were narrowed down to the top few submissions in each category to create the final ballot presented here. Readers will see many well-known local businesses. A few have built such an exceptional reputation they appear in several categories. 

We also hope you may be reminded of some old favorites you have not visited in a while, and you find time to visit them again soon. 

Likewise, in going through the ballot you may discover a few places destined to become new favorites. We hope you try some new places too.

Voting is quick and easy. Simply visit www.smithfieldtimes.com and click on the HAMMY AWARDS tab at the top of the page or on any of the HAMMY AWARDS promotional spots.

Voting is open for a limited time, so please log in as soon as you can. Winners will be announced in a special edition planned for the end of September.
