Who made a positive difference in the Square this year? What business deserves an award for exemplary community service? You get to choose in the 2nd Annual Bagg's Square Awards.  

Last year,  Utica Coffee Roasting Company won "Bagg's Square Business of the Year."  Author of "Utica: A City Worth Saving," Frank Prybycien was awarded the "Bagg's Square Legacy" prize, and Director of "Utica Monday Night," Lynne Mishalanie won the Bagg’s Square Neighborhood Advocate Award.

Jonny's Pizza gave away free Christmas dinners last year. They're deserving of a nomination for that deed alone right?! Utica Bread opened for business in 2015 and they've been satisfying that doughy carb fix ever since; including that that amazing bacon and cheddar breakfast tart. Certainly they deserve a nomination too, yes?

You have a voice, and can make the difference at the 2nd Annual Bagg's Square Awards. If you're passionate about the district and you know a person or business who's worthy of some recognition, vote now.
