2019 Simply the Best People

In 2019, we decided to separate the individual categories from the regular Simply the Best competition. Individual categories are ones where a person is nominated, rather than the business. These awards go to the person, not the business. In 2020, these categories were integrated into Simply the Best and not been done as a separate competition. The categories in 2019 were divided into four groups: Attorneys, Community, Professionals, and Service Providers.
