Main Streets are the heartbeat of America’s cities and towns. They play an important part in the long-term success of communities and build a sense of place. The America’s Main Streets contest, sponsored by STIHL Inc. and BusinessLink, aims to promote the importance and strong economic benefits of Main Streets and the small businesses that help them thrive. The winning Main Street will receive $25,000 in cash and related prizes to help revitalize that Main Street. Once a nomination is accepted, voting begins. (from the blurb)
