It took our staff several days to tally all the votes and come up with the list of winners for this year’s “Best of Severna Park” survey.

To be eligible, each business must have a commercial address within the circulation area of the Voice, and a nominee had to receive at least five votes to qualify. We only had a few categories that didn’t receive enough votes, including Best Family Practice, Best Home Improvement, Best Handyman Service, Best HVAC Service, Best Marina, Best Local Band, Best Afterschool Activity and Best Local Painter. We are listing both the first-place winner and the runner up in each qualifying category.

And so, without further ado… The envelope please!

The Voice is pleased to announce The Best Of Severna Park 2013!
