Wellsboro, Pennsylvania is competing in the Independent We Stand 2019 America's Main Streets contest. The grand prize is $25,000 in cash for downtown revitalization and “buying local” activities.

Voting for the top 25 quarter finalists is now underway and will end at 11:59:59 p.m. this Sunday, April 21.

According to contest rules, an individual who was at least 18 years old as of Feb. 25, 2019 can cast an online vote for Wellsboro once every 24 hours now through April 21 from his or her IP address by visiting, clicking on the Wellsboro Main Street photograph and then on "Vote." Or, people can vote once a day by going to the Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook page or the From My Shelf Books Facebook page.

"During the inaugural contest in 2016, Wellsboro was named one of the top 10 semifinalists but did not win," said Kevin Coolidge, a member of the Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce who with his wife, co-own From My Shelf Books, an independent bookstore in Wellsboro. Coolidge nominated Wellsboro for the 2016 contest as well as the 2017 contest and this year's. "I am voting for Wellsboro to win $25,000 to invest in our downtown," said Coolidge. "People can help Wellsboro by voting online every day."

If Wellsboro is named one of the top 25 vote getters on Monday, April 22, people will be invited to help the town become one of the 10 semifinalists by voting daily online in the second round being held from 10 a.m. on Monday, April 29 to 11:59:59 p.m. on Sunday, May 26. The grand prize winner will be selected from the top 10 and told of the win on Sunday, June 2. The public announcement will be made on Monday, June 3.

The grand prize is a $25,000 check; a $1,000 certificate for STIHL equipment; Do it Best Corp. $500 shopping spree; PPG $500 shopping spree; $500 Nationwide Marketing Group shopping spree; Free One Day Downtown Assessment from Flip This Town, a special plaque ($100 value) and recognition on Independent We Stand social media channels and public relations outreach.

Initiated in 2016 by Independent We Stand, the national small business movement, the goal of this contest is to promote the importance and strong economic benefits of Main Streets and the small businesses that help them thrive and how communities can educate their neighbors about the many benefits of "buying local."
