WDIV’s Vote 4 The Best contest, which generated more than 650,000 votes, awarded $7,500 each to 15 small businesses that won in their category.
The votes are in — more than 650,000 of them — and 15 businesses in the Detroit area will each get $7,500 of free digital advertising on ClickOnDetroit.com, the news website of Graham Media’s NBC affiliate in Detroit.WDIV.
WDIV’s Vote 4 The Best contest has been a tradition for 15 years, and this year, the station was unsure whether businesses could participate because so many were closed due to the pandemic.
But as restrictions eased, the station decided to give it a go.
Almost a thousand new businesses joined the contest to see which ones would get the most votes in 15 different categories.
“Small businesses make up a big part of the heart and soul of southeastern Michigan,” said Marla Drutz, WDIV’s general manager.
“And it’s imperative that small businesses survive. We’re hopeful that these grants can help these businesses grow.”
