Best Of 2023

Our ever-popular Best of Rural Missouri Readers’ Choice contest is back for the 20th time. This popular contest gives you the opportunity to tell us about your favorite rural Missouri restaurants, destinations and activities. New this year is the introduction of the Best of Rural Missouri Hall of Fame. Any entrant that has won five times since the contest returned to a statewide format in 2012 will be enshrined into the hall of fame and ineligible to place in the contest. This will allow us to feature more of what Missouri offers.

Based on your votes, we’ll name a winner and runner-up in each, along with an editors’ choice. By voting online, you’re entered to win a sweepstakes prize package valued at $500! The winners of the contest and sweepstakes will be announced in our April 2023 edition.

Enter the contest online at, or you may fill out the form below and mail it to us. Only online ballots are eligible for the drawing and must contain responses to all categories. No purchase necessary. One entry per person or IP address. Ballot must be received by Feb. 1, 2023.

Winner will be notified by phone. Employees and directors of Missouri’s electric cooperatives and their immediate families may vote in the contest, however, they are ineligible for the $500 sweepstakes.

To celebrate Missouri’s uniqueness, please exclude national or regional chains from your ballot.
