Dine Like a Local Contest

Scout Guide Triad Local Restaurant Contest

Rules and Conditions

 This contest will take place in two phases. The first phase is the “nomination” phase wherein individuals on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn will be able to nominate their favorite restaurants around the Triad. The second phase will be the top nominees from each city. The top nominees list will be based on the top nominees from the individual platforms of Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn and the finalists for this phase will consist of the top 10-15 restaurants* from each city.

 Three restaurants** from the Triad will be selected – one each from High Point/Jamestown, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem.  The three winning restaurants will share a complimentary ad in the next Volume of The Scout Guide Triad that will be released in September 2023. This will include a creative consultation and a professional photo shoot at the restaurant location, as well as full Scout social media coverage for a year and invitations to our exclusive social events throughout the Guide year.

 The Individual who wins the random drawing will receive $1000 to the scouted businesses of your choice. This will include $100 each to the three winning restaurants and the remaining $700 may be split between up to four (4) different businesses from The Scout Guide Triad Volume 8.

Phase 1, the nominations phase, will run from Friday, March 10th through Thursday, March 16th. Phase 2, the finalists phase, will run Friday, March 17th through Thursday, March 23rd. Both the individual winner and the winning restaurants will be announced via social media on Friday, March 24th.

You are able to select one restaurant from each town during this phase. On this form, we will ask for your name and email so that we can notify the winner; we will not use this information for anything else (if you weren’t getting our newsletter before, you won’t suddenly have it in your inbox, and we certainly would never sell your information to anyone else!).

(2)    We would appreciate you sharing the post about the contest, encouraging your followers to participate in the contest, and any other types of support you might like to offer for the contest.

* The number of finalists is subject to change based on nomination volume for each town.

** To qualify as a restaurant for purposes of this contest, the business must have a “brick and mortar” physical location in the Triad. While we love our local caterers, private chefs, and food trucks, those businesses are not the focus of this particular contest.
