Terrain Magazine wants to know how you feel about the people, places and things that make our outdoor community all that it is. And so, for the first time, we are running a Readers’ Choice Awards campaign, which starts with this issue.

The campaign is set up in a survey format, with a total of 42 categories including businesses, destinations, events — we’re even looking for St. Louis’ favorite outdoor personality. The survey will be a fill-in-the-blank format and can be accessed from the link listed below. There will also be a section at the bottom of the survey where people can make suggestions for categories that they would like to see added in future years.

Voting is open now and ends at midnight on September 17. The results will be published in a special section in the November/December 2018 issue of Terrain.

“Our community is full of hard-working people who run great businesses and organizations and provide so many different opportunities to enjoy the outdoors,” said Kovach. “There’s no better accolade than knowing that your friends and neighbors appreciate what you do. This program is a celebration of community and fun-filled days spent outside.”
