Aimed at encouraging economic development in Rural America, the contest sponsors — Frontier Communications, Dish Network, The Weather Channel and Co-Bank — are offering prizes of up to $3 million to implement projects in the winning communities.
To advance in the contest, our region, including Valley County and Meadows Valley, created an economic development strategywhich outlines 21 short-term projects to be completed by April of 2017.
We are an amazing area, with a strong commitment toward volunteerism, and right now we need to utilize this tremendous asset to complete these 21 projects and stay in the running for a prize of $3 million, which will be used to implement the long term goals of the regional strategy.
