Best of Teton Valley 2022 Winners

Copy of Teton Valley News Article published on Oct 21, 2023

Every week, we at the Teton Valley News are faced with many questions. What is going on? What are the issues people care about? What can we spotlight? All of these questions need to be answered, but perhaps my favorite question to answer is, what is helping Teton Valley?

Some of our favorite stories focus on the tangible things people are doing to help other people get the most out of living in Teton Valley. While we only have so much space in each paper, I am thrilled that we get to celebrate the people and businesses that do this the best once a year.

Some may ask; “Well, the winners don’t deserve all of the credit, aren’t they just some of many great people here?” Yes! They are. But there is so much more to consider about holding our ‘Best Of’ competition. It has always been our belief that “a rising tide lifts all ships” and healthy competition is the best way to foster excellence.

The winners are celebrated as the people that raise the bar and set the pace for other businesses and people to aim for. Instead of being simply labeled the winner, these people and businesses deserve to be recognized for their achievements in furthering the community and encouraging healthy growth in our local economy... Hence the “Best of Teton Valley” moniker.

Ours is not an easy environment to succeed in. Costs, from gas to housing to staffing, have never been higher. All of this year’s contenders need to give themselves a pat on the back for just being here. People now are facing a higher level of adversity than they have before, both in life and in business, and that is why it is so inspiring to see this community succeed. What’s more, each of these businesses does their absolute best to give back to the community, and support each other in turn.

The businesses, individuals, and nonprofits are the backbone of this community who provide much-needed services that we all depend on and amenities that not only drive tourism, but enrich all of our lives daily. So it seemed only fitting that we should draw attention to these people and the service they provide in our “Best of Teton Valley.”

It is certainly not easy to choose all of the right categories. Within such a small, dynamic area there are many businesses that could have their own category, and we’ll keep adding categories going forward.

We hope the voting period provided you a moment to reflect and appreciate all local businesses and the dedication it takes to stay in business. Please continue to support all of our local businesses and shop or buy locally whenever possible!

To celebrate the sixth year of the contest, and to show our appreciation for the unprecedented number of people who voted, we’ll be putting out a magazine next month that will serve as a directory and guide to the Best of Teton Valley. Pick one up as soon as possible, and mark your calendar to vote in next year’s contest.

This year we have had over 40,000 votes, smashing our previous record of last year by around 20,000 votes. We would like to extend our deep gratitude to each and every person that cast even just one vote. Thank you for voting, and we can’t wait to hear from you again next year!
