If you were going to recommend a place to eat, a doctor to see, or even a great park for kids to a friend, where would you tell them to go? That's what we're trying to figure out in Hot 99.1's first Listener's Choice Awards!

Listener's Choice is your chance to sound off on what makes the Capital Region great, as well as support your favorite local spots.

Nominations start May 4 and will close May 18. There will be four major categories: Restaurants, Goods & Services, Health & Wellness and Entertainment, with more than 30 sub-categories.

To nominate your favorite local business, click the links below and then add the names of the businesses you want to win in the blank space below their category on the form. At the end of the nomination process, all businesses with the most nominations will be added to the final voting list.

Final voting will start May 18 and will end May 25. The winners will be announced on-air by May 31. All winners will receive a plaque to display in their business announcing them the Listener's Choice winner!
