Guided by our cooperative commitment to community, Iowa’s electric co-ops are launching a new contest in June to celebrate local volunteers. The Shine the Light contest, sponsored by the Touchstone Energy Cooperatives of Iowa, will accept nominations and select three winners who will each receive a $1,500 donation to their local charity or nonprofit.
Members and employees of Iowa’s electric cooperatives are eligible to nominate local volunteers during the month of June. If you receive electricity from Pella Cooperative Electric, you are a co-op member and we encourage you 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 be nominated with consent from their parents or legal guardians.
The three winners will be announced during the Iowa State Fair in August. In addition to the $1,500 donation, each winner will be featured in the September issue of Living with Energy in Iowa magazine.
Go to www.IowaShineTheLight.com to review the contest rules. Contest entries will be accepted at this website starting on June 1. Help us shine the light on community volunteers this summer and consider making a nomination.
