We’re proud to announce a Collin County city made the top 25 – Congratulations McKinney’s downtown Main Street!

The national contest for Main Streets (yes, the literal street) has a grand prize of $25,000, and it’s our turn to help McKinney win the big bucks!

Nominees from all across the United States were submitted and then voted on by residents since March 1. The Main Streets with the most votes from March 1–April 24 were then tallied, producing the 25 semifinalists. From May 2–29, vote for McKinney here.

Independent We Stand is hosting this America’s Main Streets’ contest promoting the fact that a city’s Main Street keeps things moving and is an important part of the community. The organization’s goal is to bring awareness to the economic benefits of this important street and the small businesses that keep them thriving.


You can vote once every day, per network/WiFi that you’re connected to. The semifinalist round of voting is open now and is over May 29. The winner will be announced June 3. In the event of a tie, a judge will look over submissions, and choose the best based on submission criteria. For the full list of rules, visit
