Mitchell's Main Street has been entered into a contest for the chance to win $25,000.

America's Main Street contest is looking to "help promote the importance and strong economic benefits" of Main Streets and "the small businesses that help them thrive."

The contest, which Mitchell was entered into anonymously, is open nationwide. The winning entry will earn a prize of $25,000, a variety of shopping opportunities and exposure to assist in renovating the street.

Citizens may vote once a day until the voting period is over. Voting for quarterfinalists is open until Sunday, with semifinalist voting taking place May 2 through May 29, and the winner announced June 3.

Other South Dakota main streets nominated in the contest are Burke and Brookings.
