From hand-carved canoe paddles to hardy leather boots, goods made in Minnesota are finally getting a bit of well-deserved national attention. New Yorkers relish our quietly cool style and durable flannel; West Coasters import our woolen blankets; anyone with tastebuds loves our craft beer and cheese-stuffed burgers. This is the year of Minnesota Made.

In that spirit, we're celebrating all our Minnesota favorites, and our Twin Cities favorites in particular. Below you'll find the 2015 Best of the Twin Cities Readers' Choice Poll. For the first round of voting, you'll be asked to write in your nominees for winners in a variety of categories, from food and drink to arts and entertainment. You'll be able to change and update your ballot until March 3, when all saved ballots will automatically be tabulated for the second round of voting. On March 11, round two of the Readers' Choice Poll will begin. Choose your favorites from the top five nominees in each category before the second round closes on April 5. Then check back in to find out which of your favorites won the 2015 Best of the Twin Cities Readers' Choice Poll.

The best part? If you participate in our Readers' Choice Poll, you will automatically be entered to win four general admission tickets to our Best of the Twin Cities party on Thursday, April 23 at Orchestra Hall. Tickets go on sale March 2.

Now go on, shout out everything that makes Minnesota and the Twin Cities worthy of the national spotlight.
