Thank you for voting for your favorite businesses in the Heights in the FutureHeights Best of the Heights Awards. This annual survey enables residents to recognize the unique attributes of locally owned Heights businesses, and their contributions to the local economy.

The survey runs from Jan. 1-Feb. 15, 2021. Results will be printed in the April issue of the Heights Observer.

Our independent businesses are so important to the vitality of our community. Their individual personalities and unique products and services are one of the things that makes the Heights such an awesome place to live!

This year, more than ever, it is important to show our support so that they will still be here when we come through this pandemic. To that end, FutureHeights has purchased gift certificates from a wide variety of Heights businesses. Each person who submits a valid ballot qualifies for a chance to win one of four gift certificate packages (worth a minimum of $250).

Additional chances to win can be obtained with a donation to FutureHeights: two chances for $10 and six for $25.


Voting rules and how to ensure a valid ballot:
One ballot per person.  

You must provide your contact information in order for your ballot to be valid.

Each category is a write-in category so please make sure that you spell the name of the business correctly.

The ballot must be at least half full (6 categories or more).

You cannot vote for the same business in more than 3 categories. 

Businesses must be located within the city lines of Cleveland Heights and University Heights.

Ballots that do not meet these requirements will be considered invalid.
