Newsask Challenge 4 Communities

The Challenge 4 Communities:  4 Weeks; 4 Challenges; 4 Winners; 4 Prizes

The Challenge 4 Communities is officially over. What a 4 weeks its been. Now, to announce the winners of our Challenge.

1st Place: Friends of Stovel Park
2nd Place: Little Explorers Daycare
3rd Place: Rotary Club of Melfort

Congratulations to all Challengers!!

Thank you for taking the time for entering in our Challenge.

We are planning a fourth annual “Challenge 4 Communities” and again, we’re inviting all community groups and municipalities to submit community projects that would compete for prize money.  The public will decide the winners with weekly voting on the internet over a four week format beginning October 31, 2017.

What new projects in your community or region could benefit from this prize money?  It is open to community groups, neighborhood groups, youth groups, senior groups and municipalities.  Is there an opportunity or event these groups in your community could capture?  Feel free to combine the talents of your community groups to put together this submission.  For example, if a community group wanted to look into building a playground or starting a recycling project, they might have the expertise to research possible locations and search out budget information, but not feel comfortable building a Facebook page.  Contacting a school group might provide the Facebook or YouTube expertise and contribute more community interest in the project.  How many people in the community can you involve?  How much voting interest and excitement can you generate?  Will your community make it to the top four?

All community groups (service groups, neighborhood groups, youth groups, senior groups, municipal groups, sports groups, organizations, etc.) are invited to submit community project that would compete for prize money.  The public will decide the winners with weekly voting on the internet over a four week format beginning October 31, 2017. Don’t miss out on this opportunity of prize money for your community group. First Place: $3,000; Second Place: $2,000; Third Place: $1,000; Fourth Place: $500.
