The Best of American Samoa, You Decide


Twenty-five businesses and a government entity were presented awards last night as winners of, “The Best of American Samoa, You Decide Survey,”
sponsored by Southseas Broadcasting Inc., owners of 93 KHJ and V103 radio stations.

Our summer interns distributed about 300 questionnaires at locations where people
congregated and also on Face Book, asking people where they thought was the best places to get food, get a tattoo, get your hair done and get other goods and services.

pizzaThe questions were not multiple choices. Respondents gave their own answers.
