The Arlies, Arlington’s Community Awards, Are Back for Spring

Spring is right around the corner, and so is the next edition of The Arlies!

In January, ARLnow readers took part in the winter 2021 Arlies by letting us know some of your favorite local places, people and organizations. Soon we’ll be highlighting even more categories.

What’s the best brunch spot in Arlington? Where’s your favorite place for date night?

Those are a couple of the questions that ARLnow readers will help to answer.

At a time when many residents and businesses are struggling, the Arlies provides a way to highlight some of the good things happening in our backyard, while bringing recognition to those whose dedication to service has earned the community’s trust.

Voting for the spring 2021 Arlies will kick off at the end of March. We’ll tally the votes and announce the winners soon after.

This is a strictly reader-driven award, with readers and not editors choosing their favorites in each category.

We’ll be announcing the categories next week alongside our sponsor, George Mason University Schar School of Policy and Government. Stay tuned!
