BELOIT — Beloit residents, it’s time to show your pride.

Downtown Beloit has been nominated for “The Best Shopping on Main Street Competition.”

If Beloit wins, the city’s downtown area will be featured on the nationally syndicated show, “Small Town Big Deal.” The show is hosted by Rodney Miller and Jann Carol, who travel around the country to promote local communities.

Small Town Big Deal went on-air with RFD-TV in September 2012, and has since been added to many stations across the nation. It is currently gearing up to air season two.

If Beloit won the Best Shopping on Main Street competition, businesses would also be featured on the website

“The TV show would spotlight Beloit, all the businesses would be featured,” said Shauna El-Amin, executive director of Downtown Beloit Association.

Residents are allowed to vote online, once per email, in order to make Beloit number one. El-Amin said the city currently is in fifth place.

“We need every vote,” El-Amin said.
