Prairie Energy Cooperative is pleased to announce details for the 2nd annual Shine the Light contest, which celebrates our cooperative commitment to community. This statewide contest will accept nominations for local volunteers in June and award three winners with a $2,000 donation to their local charity of community organization.
"We're excited to participate in this cooperative effort to shine the light on local volunteers," said Time Marienau, CEO. "So many people throughout our service area deserve to be recognized for making a positive impact."
Sponsored by Touchstone Energy Cooperatives of Iowa, the Shine the Light contest will accept contest entries during the month of June. The three winners will be announce in September. In addition to receiving a $2,000 donation for their charity or nonprofit, the winners will also be featured in the September issue of Iowa Electric Cooperative Living magazine.
How to Nominate
Members and employees of Iowa's electric cooperatives are eligible to nominate local volunteers. If you receive electricity from Prairie Energy, you're a co-op member and invited to nominate someone who is making a positive impact in the community. The volunteer being nominated does not need to be a co-op member. Minors may also be nominated with consent from their parents or legal guardians.
Go to www.IowaShineTheLight.com from June 1-30 to make a nomination and to review the contest rules. Nominators will need to provide contact information and answer this question in 500 words or less: How has your nominee made a positive difference in the community and why do they deserve to be recognized?
