Shawnee Mission Post, Blue Valley Post to launch inaugural Best of Johnson County on June 1


Tuesday, May 24, 2022

(Overland Park, Kan.) The Shawnee Mission Post and the Blue Valley Post are helping recognize and celebrate the people and businesses that make Johnson County such a great place to live, work and play with the first-ever Best of Johnson County.

Launching June 1, the Best of Johnson County will give Johnson County residents the chance to vote for their local favorites in 80 categories — from best burger to best dentist.

As the most-turned-to source for community news and information in the state’s most populous, most prosperous county, the Shawnee Mission Post and the Blue Valley Post are the natural hosts for the Best of Johnson County. In fact, tens of thousands of Johnson County residents already turn to the Post each month for recommendations through the publications’ “5 to Try” series.

“Part of our unique approach to community news is being hyper-responsive to our readers and providing them information they truly value,” said Post Publisher Jay Senter. “Johnson County residents want recommendations for the best that’s out there in everything they do. The Best of Johnson County will help guide them to even more of what their community has to offer.”

The Best of Johnson County will have three phases:

  • A Nominations Round, which will run June 1-July 1. Residents will nominate their favorites in 80 categories. The five nominees with the most entries at the end of the round will advance to the voting round.
  • A Voting Round, which will run Aug. 22-Sept. 26. Residents will cast votes among the finalists to select the winners in each category.
  • The Winners Announcement, which will take place on Oct. 27. We’ll tally the results and unveil the winners this fall!

To help local businesses put their best foot forward for Johnson County voters, Post Publishing is offering a number of sponsorship and promotion opportunities. Businesses can request a free personalized promotions kit with social media graphics and printable fliers to encourage their fans and customers to support them in this year’s Best of Johnson County.

There are also a limited number of paid sponsorship opportunities, allowing businesses to place an ad highlighting what makes them the best next to their categories on the ballot. For more information on sponsorships, please contact the company here.
