We start our annual 10 Most Beautiful Women contest by poring over dozens of nominations introducing us to amazing women all over 417-land. Our editors choose 20 finalists who are put up for an online vote by readers. All of the women let us into their lives by answering a questionnaire, but ultimately 10 move on to the next round to be profiled as winners in this feature. Meet this year’s winners, including multiple local business owners, women advocating for the next generation and those leading the charge of making 417-land a great place to work and live.
