TEXARKANA (KTAL/KMSS) – Main Street Texarkana is a quarter-finalist in a national contest and officials said on Wednesday they need your vote to win!
The grand prize in the ‘America’s Main Streets’ contest is $25,000. Main Street Texarkana officials said the prize money would be used for beautification.
They want to continue to make downtown a more inviting destination for new businesses, residents and tourists. “The development of the downtown certainly sparks more development for the entire city, and as it’s beautified and welcomed, that absolutely encourages new businesses into the downtown, people to come and want to walk around and spend money,” said Texarkana Main Street Director Ina McDowell.
Voting in this round runs through May 26. People can vote up to 25 times a day at https://mainstreetcontest.com/profile/87
