UFA Investing $250,000 into Rural Communities Across Alberta

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sept. 10, 2013) - UFA Co-operative Limited (@UFAcooperative ) is awarding a total of $250,000 to five projects that support rural sustainability in the communities we serve. Applications for the UFA Rural From the Roots Up - Get 'n' Give Contest are now open on the website at UFA.com/GetnGive.

In true co-operative spirit, the contest is a pay it forward style in which each winning group is responsible for selecting the next deserving project. The sooner an application is entered, the more chances to win one of five prizes of $50,000.

"We encourage rural community groups, societies, schools and clubs to submit creative entries, and show the heart of their project by including photos, videos, artwork and/or compelling stories with their applications," said Jessica Barrie, Community Investment Manager, UFA Co-operative Limited.

"It's about creating connections in rural communities and making a lasting impact. Let us know what $50,000 would mean to your community," said Barrie.

Rural community groups who are located within 200km of a UFA Farm & Ranch Supply store or Petroleum agency are welcome to enter. Five winning projects will be chosen between the end of October 2013 and the end of April 2014. For more information, visit UFA.com/GetnGive or follow UFA on social media:
