Grinnell, Iowa (PRWEB) April 03, 2015
Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company seeks submissions for projects across the Midwest that will improve local fairgrounds. Grinnell Mutual is offering Fairground Facelift grants totaling $3,500 to three county fairgrounds in order to make a lasting impact for the fairground and the people who use it.
“The fairground is a gathering place for the people living in communities across the Midwest,” said Grinnell Mutual Director of Advertising and Community Relations Barb Baker. “Many fairgrounds show signs of how well they are used. The Fairground Facelift is Grinnell Mutual’s way of recognizing the impact local fairgrounds have on their communities.”
Grinnell Mutual will accept project submissions on its Front Porch Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/GrinnellMutualFrontPorch, through Thursday, May 7. Projects must include (or affiliate with) a county fairground.
“People living and working in rural areas know the needs of their local fairgrounds,” said Baker. “Their votes on Grinnell Mutual’s Facebook page will decide which projects will receive Fairground Facelift grants.”
Grinnell Mutual will announce finalists Monday, May 18, and any Facebook fan can vote daily on project finalists to help choose the projects that will receive grants. Voting ends Wednesday, June 3, 2:59 p.m. CT. The three finalists with the most votes will receive $2,000, $1,000, and $500, respectively.
