Organizers of a local “Show Town Showcase” that includes Houston called for residents this week to vote for the Texas County seat in the contest.

Houston is among 36 communities nominated to compete in the Missouri Humanities’ 2024 Small Town Showcase.

Five towns will be selected. Nominations closed May 1. Voting began May 15 and runs through July 15.

Here is the voting link: 

The winner is determined by online votes.  Everyone should share the link and vote, says Elaine Campbell of the Houston Community Betterment and Arts Council. Votes are not limited to Houston area, but from around the state, nation and world.  Houston’s motto will be “The Good Neighbor Town in The Largest County of Missouri.”

Those picked will be highlighted in several ways:

•A short video.

•An hour-long podcast, roundtable-style.

•A feature in the bi-annual publication, MoHumanities.

Houston was selected from an application submitted by Houston Community Betterment and Arts Council of Houston Inc. and penned by Campbell.

At persons can see the videos and listen to the podcasts from past Small Town Showcase communities.
