#ThankARetailer contest winners announced
By ADAMA Canada
After an outpouring of support from rural communities across Canada, ADAMA Canada has selected four agri-retailers to receive grand prizes of $15,000each to donate to worthy causes in their communities. ADAMA Canada launched its inaugural #ThankARetailer contest in November last year and has announced the following winners for each region:
Eastern Canada: Huron Perth Ag Service Inc. – Woodham, Ontario
Manitoba: Foster Ag. Services – Arborg, Manitoba
Saskatchewan: Richardson Pioneer – Strasbourg, Saskatchewan
Alberta & BC: Bashaw Crop Services – Bashaw, Alberta
The #ThankARetailer contest encouraged Canadians to nominate agri-retailers that make an outstanding contribution to their community, then vote for them online to improve their chances of winning. Over 220,000 votes were cast for 52 nominated retails, many of which garnered significant support through social media. Several local newspapers also featured their town's nominee to help spread awareness and rally votes.
More information on each winner, including the good causes the winners are supporting, can be found at ThankARetailer.ca.
