Time is running out to nominate your community's UFA small town hero!

Nominations close on July 22

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2012) - The countdown is on to nominate a community hero for UFA's Small Town Heroes 2012 Contest! UFA's Small Town Heroes legacy continues with the third annual contest which seeks out and rewards individuals in rural Alberta who go above and beyond for their communities. Nominations can be submitted at www.ufa.com/smalltownheroes and close on Sunday, July 22, 2012.

This year, UFA has raised the stakes, rewarding two grand prize winners with $10,000 each for a winning community project and an exclusive Paul Brandt concert in their home town. Eight runners up will receive $2,500 for their respective community project.

UFA is excited to once again be partnering with Country Music Superstar Paul Brandt who will be hitting the road in October 2012 on the third annual Small Town Heroes bus tour. The bus will make several stops in small towns throughout Alberta for meet and greet opportunities at local UFA Farm and Ranch stores and UFA Petroleum Agencies. Two concerts will take place for the Small Town Heroes contest grand prize winners.

"We've received a number of compelling nominations to date, it always amazes me to learn about the many small town heroes who contribute to making their communities a better place to work and live," said Bob Nelson, President and CEO of UFA Co-operative Limited. "We encourage everyone who knows a small town hero to take a moment and nominate that individual today."
