thankful | Shelter Insurance®

Shelter Insurance® and its agents have a long history of supporting the communities we serve, and we have always encouraged community involvement. One way we do this is through our annual "Thankful for Our Communities" (T4OC) contest. This contest gives people a chance to spotlight their communities, and gives five winners the opportunity to make a large contribution to their favorite charity. Winners also receive a $100 Visa® gift card they can keep for themselves.

Essays must be between 3,000 and 6,000 characters long (350-1,000 words). Hint: Winning contestants in the past wrote essays that really made readers want to visit their town.

Contestants should encourage others to vote for their essay because the essay that receives the most votes will automatically win one of the prizes. The next nine essays with the most votes will be submitted to a panel of Shelter judges, who will choose the four remaining winners. Entries will be accepted until March 30, 2018; voting ends April 6, 2018.
