Independent We Stand Announces Quarterfinalists In National America’s Main Streets Contest

With more than 494,000 total votes cast for 216 entrants during the nomination phase of the 2021 America’s Main Streets “Road to Recovery” contest, Independent We Stand is pleased to announce the quarterfinalists and the start of the next phase—and one step closer to the $25,000 prize. The goal of the contest is to draw attention to the small businesses that line American’s Main Streets, which function as community pillars, bringing residents together during a time when many have been apart. The economic vitality of our Main Streets is one way we will continue the “Road to Recovery” in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Semifinalist online voting begins November 15 and runs through December 12, 2021. The winner of the “America’s Main Streets” contest will be announced December 20, 2021, with a “Show Your Main Streets Some Love” celebration scheduled for some time around Valentine’s Day, in February 2022.
