Welcome to the 2005 edition of Boulder County Gold, your Daily Camera’s annual People’s Choice Awards. Inside you’ll find the best of the best in Boulder County – the people, places and things that have made the largest impact on our community.

This year’s winners and runners up are a distinguished bunch. Some are repeat winners and some are brand new winners. With so many wonderful choices in our area, the competition was tough. Several categories came down to just two or three votes

Your votes have been tallied, and with the exception of a few of you who tried to pull a fast one, the results follow.

Cheaters notwithstanding, we thank everyone who took the time to vote. You were in good company; thousands of locals told us why Boulder County is such a great place to live, shop, eat, work and play. Turn the page and read about the winners.
