What makes your community great? What would make people want to come and visit? Why do you love it? Our annual "Thankful for Our Communities" (T4OC) contest gives you the chance to tell us.
What’s in it for You?
Besides the warm and fuzzy feelings you’ll get by supporting your community, you could be one of five winners who will have the opportunity to make a $5,000 contribution to their favorite charity. If your charity wins, you’ll receive a $100 Visa® gift card for your time and effort.
How Do You Enter?
You may enter the contest by submitting a written essay or video that is compelling enough to make our judges want to visit your community. If you write an essay, it must be between 350-1,000 words. Videos should be at least three minutes long but no longer than five minutes.
Contestants should encourage others to vote for their essay or video because the entry 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 May 6, 2019; voting ends May 13, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. CST.
