Itasca-Mantrap is seeking applications for the Touchstone Energy Community Award, which recognizes individuals, businesses, non-profit and community groups that have shown a strong commitment to the community. Any organization that has helped make the Itasca-Mantrap service area a better place to live and work is eligible for the $500 cash award to be donated to a charity of choice.
Community members may nominate an organization, association, business, or individual by completing an application form, available at the Itasca-Mantrap office or online at www.itasca-mantrap.com .
The application will require a description of the project, program or event and the positive impact it brought to the community. Additional documents or photos of the program or project are encouraged. Completed applications must be received at Itasca-Mantrap’s office by Oct. 31, 2014.
“As a cooperative, one of our guiding principles is concern for community,” said Member Services Manager Esther Simon. “This award exemplifies that principle by allowing us to recognize individuals or organizations that have shown that same level of commitment to the community.”
The award recipient will be announced in November and will then contend for the statewide Touchstone Energy Community Award, which has a cash prize of $1,000 donated to a charity of choice. The statewide award winner will be recognized at the Minnesota Rural Electric Association annual meeting in February 2015.
Minnesota Touchstone Energy cooperatives are part of a national alliance of more than 750 electric cooperatives in 46 states that adhere to the values of integrity, accountability, innovation and commitment to community.
