A HUGE 'Thank You' is due to everyone who participated in this year's Hometown Heroine contest.

It was truly moving to see the outpouring of support and votes for all of the amazing women involved.

Our final round saw 185,129 total votes come in, with 114,834 nabbed by our 2013 Winner: Renee Conklin!

Renee - Please contact mark.hemmer@townsquaremedia.com and we'll work on prize fulfillment.

For all of our participants, thank you for setting a wonderful example for strength and courage in your communities! It was very special to be able to help recognize your contributions.
