Reader’s Digest is hosting its “Nicest Place in America” content. This is the third time Reader’s Digest has run the contest. The nominations have been narrowed down to 50 places. Franklin has one of the top 50 spots but they need your vote to win the contest.

The winner will be featured on the cover of Reader’s Digest with a story about their town.

Here’s what Reader’s Digest has to say about the contest:

If your faith in humanity has been wavering, Nicest Places in America will restore it. America is full of places where neighbors are friends, strangers are welcome, and random acts of kindness are the norm. Each year, we find stories that prove that America is full of nice people trying to do right by each other. Our goal is to inspire everyone to be better friends, relatives, and neighbors.

Franklin was nominated by Alan Simms. In his nomination, it stated, “Everyone here is very nice and welcoming to everyone they meet. We have a program here called ‘Franklin Locals.’ It’s a total volunteer program whereby Franklinites walk around our historic downtown area and act as ‘on-street concierges’—welcoming folks to Franklin and asking if we can assist in any way—e.g., locate a site or store, point them to the public restrooms, recommend a restaurant or just say hello, we’re glad you’re here.” Read more of the nomination here.
