The "People's Choice" award will be voted on by the public. The second award called "Village Vision" will be voted on by Carlsbad City Council members. The third award called "Kid's Favorite" will be voted on by a group of middle school students from the Carlsbad Boys & Girls Torch Club. Online voting for the "People's Choice" award will open on Friday, November 27 and will run through December 17. During this same time frame, City Council members and the kids from the Torch Club will be visiting the stores that have entered the contest to pick their favorite. 

On December 18th, there will be a village celebration, complete with live music, carolers and hospitality where the contest winners will be announced. The celebration ceremony will begin at 4:00 p.m. at Choice Juicery, 430 Carlsbad Village Drive (corner of Carlsbad Village Drive and State Street).Carlsbad-based Pacific Motion Dance Company will perform a couple holiday-themed numbers and a local middle-school choir will sing Christmas carols.
