THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE

We all know that this year marks the biggest election in our history (aside from the Presidential race) as it is the 13th Anniversary of the Best of LI program brought to you by Bethpage Federal Credit Union. Our 13th year promises to be more interesting and exciting than the Presidential Race and may very well hold more sway in Long Island!

The nomination period is officially over. The top 15-18 nominees (depending on the category) will advance to the official ballot where it will be a battle to the finish, because there is only one place on the podium in each category… FIRST PLACE.

In each category whoever received the largest number of votes will be declared the Best Of Long Island. There is no second or third place. If applicable, a National Winner will be selected, but only if they receive the most votes in that category.

Long Islanders cherish the value of this annual competition and the importance of being named the BEST of L.I. The year 2018 will be distinguished by a new group of annual winners. There can be only one, so…
