Dream Big Grow Here - Cedar Valley: Voting Begins at Midnight!!

by Dan Beenken April 14, 2011
As I type this, we have about twelve hours to go before we open up the polls for voting for the Dream Big Grow Here Cedar Valley grant contest.  Remember, anyone can vote, but you can only vote once per day per entry between the 15th and the last day of the month.  My advice: Vote Early and Vote Often.  We've seen some pretty cool ideas come through the site over the past couple of weeks.  Make sure to check them out and spread a little Cedar Valley Business Love on them by voting for your favorites.  Voting ends on April 30th at midnight.  Good luck to everyone!
