Help! For some reason I am not seeing the email or what ever Bree listed showing the 'award notification' she is referring to. What am I missing and how do I correct this?

I didn't post the email. Sorry for the confusion.
Received it this morning saying my B&B had been chosen as 'X Town's Local Business Award Winner' and saying I could pick up the 'award' on their website. I thought I had posted about this last year but with a slightly different twist. The twist being we had been nominated for this award. Now, it appears, we've won it!
