Do you know a place where strangers welcome each other; everyone joins together to help those in need; or people are just plain nice? Then we want to hear about it.
After being one of the judges for last year’s Nicest Places in America contest, Good News Network is once again partnering with Reader’s Digest to ignite the search for communities, businesses, neighborhoods, and towns that shine with kindness.
Out of the hundreds of nominations that were submitted to last year’s contest, the winner was Yassin’s Falafel House: a Tennessee restaurant that has served as a sanctuary and source of support for everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, or background.
This year, the contest will be expanded to pick 50 winners—one from each U.S. state.
In addition to GNN posting some of our favorite ‘Nice Places’ on our website and GNN app, the winner of this year’s contest will be featured on the Reader’s Digest cover, a magazine with a circulation of 2.6 million households in America, and 40 million worldwide.
If you want to submit a nomination for the contest, visit the Nicest Places website and write about a small act of kindness that sparked a movement, a funny local custom that makes people feel good, or even about how they overcame a challenge to ‘show what they’re made of’.
You have until May 31st to submit a nomination.
