Best of Gurnee - Fall 2021

Do you know a business that exemplifies the Best of Gurnee?


What is it?

Best of Gurnee started in 2016 as a business recognition campaign that awards and recognizes businesses, large and small, national and local, for exemplary contributions to building and bettering our wonderful community! Businesses may be nominated in two categories - Paying It Forward and Bringing Me Home - described in the nomination form below.

When is it?

This nomination form may be submitted at any time throughout the year. The mayor will recognize nominees for their efforts by the end of September via the Village’s communication channels (social media, website, newsletter) and on-air during the Gurnee's Got It segment on 102.3 XLC.
