Now Accepting Applications!
The Touchstone Energy® Community Award acknowledges the efforts of those who have impacted numerous people, addressed unmet community needs or provided necessary services.
One winning organization will receive a $500 cash prize and will compete with winners from other electric cooperatives for statewide recognition and an additional $1,000 cash prize.
Any civic organization or non-profit in our service area is eligible to compete for the award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to our local communities.
Organizations are eligible to apply for the award themselves, or community members may apply on behalf of a deserving organization.
The application will require a description of the project, program or event and the positive impact it brought to the community.
