Drumroll please...the winners of the ninth annual Best of Our Valley contest are here! Each year AZFoothills.com ask readers to vote on their favorite Valley people, places, and more. The contest is answered with millions of votes and more than four hundred winners.

Best of Our Valley contest winners will be featured in the April 2016 issue of Arizona Foothills Magazine, a tell-all guide to the best people and places in the Valley of the Sun, as chosen by its residents. The winner/s with the most total votes will be featured on the cover, but you will have to wait until April to find out who they are!

As a special thanks to the winners and those who helped them attain their "Best Of" status, a celebratory bash will be held in May 2016. Stay tuned for details on the fabulous fete!
