2020 seems to be the year of the drive-thru graduation but two Hudson Valley businesses' are looking to make it a memorable one for some Dutchess County students.

Melzingah Tap House in Beacon and Publick House 23 in Pleasant Valley are looking for people to nominate local high school seniors and they'll be offering up a free catered party for up to 50 people for the winners. Graduating seniors from Beacon, John Jay and Ketchum High Schools are eligible to win in the Melzingah contest and Arlington, Lourdes, Spakenkill, Poughkeepsie, FDR and Millbrook are eligible for the Publick House 23 contest.

They will be accepting nominations through June 14 and will be followed by a voting round. The voting stage will begin on June 18 and will run through the 31.
