Kubota Canada is partnering with the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) to launch nominations for its 2021 Community Hero contest. Now in its fourth year, the contest brings attention to and commemorates Canadians making a positive impact in their communities.
“In every community across Canada, there are heroes that don’t make headlines. They don’t get plaques or pictures with the mayor. Their job comes without glamour and their goal is not glory. So, this year, in partnership with our friends at the CHL, we’re honored to continue recognizing these heroes through our Community Hero contest,” says Yannick Montagano, vice president of sales, marketing, service & engineering for Kubota Canada.
This year’s Community Hero contest features a new prize structure designed to make a difference in the communities themselves: A $20,000 grant will be given to the initiative of the winner’s choice, in their honor.
“We’re honored to partner with Kubota to do our part in celebrating the countless Canadians who work, serve and do their best for others. While they may not ask for the recognition, they deserve it, nonetheless and we’re proud to recognize the efforts Canadian heroes have made,” says Dan MacKenzie, CHL president.
Nominations will be accepted from September 29, 2021 to October 24, 2021, at www.kubota.ca/CommunityHero. The winner will be announced in early December. In addition to the donation, Kubota will be inviting the winner and a guest to attend the Kubota CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in early 2022 for an exclusive VIP experience. The challenge is open to Canadian citizens only.
