The Collegian Media Group, a registered independent student organization, will host its annual Best of Manhattan Contest.

Participants can vote for their favorite businesses to be recognized for the places they love best in Manhattan. A variety of local businesses are competing to be this year's Best of Manhattan.

Voting will be Oct. 24 through Nov. 25. Best of Manhattan winners will be announced Dec. 9 and awarded a plaque to display. Voters could win three prizes for participating. Prizes include two ziplining packages to Wildwood Adventure Park and free Qdoba for a semester.

To participate, voters will complete the online voting form. Links can be found on the Collegian Media Group's social media platforms and QR codes in the print edition of the Collegian, posters and the newsletter. Runners-up will also be awarded a plaque.

About Best of Manhattan: The Purple Apple Award was designed by the Collegian Media Group and goes back decades. The goal is to highlight local businesses and engage with the Manhattan and K-State community. Winners of each "Best Of" category will be recognized with a Purple Apple award plaque to hang up. This award recognizes the hard work these businesses put in to serve the community.
