SHINE THE LIGHT CONTEST
The Touchstone Energy Cooperatives of Iowa value human energy and appreciate the people who make our communities better. That’s why we’re launching a new contest to celebrate community volunteers this summer.
Called Shine the Light, this contest is an opportunity for the employees and member-consumers of Iowa’s electric cooperatives to nominate someone who has made a positive impact in their community. In addition to being recognized in Living with Energy in Iowa magazine, the person you nominate could be one of three winners who will receive a $1,500 donation for their charity or community organization.
Online applications for Shine the Light will be accepted during the month of June on this webpage. Check back starting on June 1 to nominate a deserving volunteer in your community.
Employees and member-consumers of Iowa’s electric co-ops are eligible to nominate community volunteers. If you receive electricity from an Iowa electric cooperative, you are a member-consumer and eligible to nominate. The volunteer being nominated does not need to be a member-consumer of an electric cooperative. Minors may be nominated with permission/consent from their parents or legal guardians.
A judging panel will select three Iowa winners who will each receive a $1,500 check for their local charity or organization. The winners will be announced during the Iowa State Fair in the newly renovated Rastetter 4-H Building in August. Additionally, the winners will be featured in the September issue of Living with Energy in Iowa magazine, which is mailed out monthly to over 54,000 co-op member-consumer households and businesses.
