You have seven more days to cast your vote for your favorite Wintertainers™. Your vote determines the winners for this year’s valley Star Awards. The deadline to turn in your ballot, or fill one out online, is 5 p.m., Wednesday, February 12.

Each year we ask the Winter Texans to help us choose the top Wintertainers™ who perform in the Winter Texan resorts in the Rio Grande Valley. This is your chance to decide who will receive the top awards at the annual Valley Star Awards Show, hosted by the Winter Texan Times and Robert and Billie Ferguson.

We will tally the votes and have them ready for the February 19 event that will be held at Mission Bell Resort, from 1 to 4 p.m.

A ballot listing nominees for Family Vocal Group, Vocal Group (not related), Male Vocalist, Female Vocalist, Favorite Duet Musical Group, and others are available to vote on. There is also the coveted Entertainer of the Year award that you have the chance to write in on the ballot.

Some of the nominees include Mario Rosales, Rusty Rierson, Kai, Curt James, Tavie Spivey, Betty Rydell, Naomi Bristow, Goldwing, Lindley Creek, Kody Norris Band, Dave & Daphne, Spittin’ Image, Maggie Mae with Danny Smith, Cruisers, Hot Rodz, Sweetwater, Jealous Heart, Castaway, Aloha Hula, Ambassadors of Grace, Absolutely Country, Definitely Gospel, and Diego & Edith.

To vote for your favorite Valley Wintertainers™, fill out the ballot in today’s paper and mail it to 1217 N. Conway, Mission TX 78572, or, vote online at www.wintertexantimes.com. Only one vote per person is allowed. No photocopies of the ballot are permitted. Voters must either vote online (preferred method) or fill out the ballot printed in the Winter Texan Times newspaper. Ballots must be received by February 12 to be counted. We invite you to vote for someone in every category – if you are familiar with the nominees (nominees were picked at an earlier date by the activity directors in the Valley parks).
