Lake Country Power is seeking applications for the 2023 Touchstone Energy Community Award. Any non-profit organization that has helped make northern Minnesota a better place to live and work through its community service is eligible for the $500 cash award.

Community members may nominate an organization by completing an application form. The application will require a description of the community service project, program or event and the positive impact it brought to the community. Applications should be returned no later than 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 1, 2023, to Tami Zaun at 26039 Bear Ridge Drive, Cohasset, MN 55721.   

The award recipient will contend for the statewide Touchstone Energy Community Award, which has a cash prize of $2,000. The statewide award winner will be recognized at the Minnesota Rural Electric Association annual meeting in March 2024.

The Minnesota Touchstone Energy cooperatives, including Lake Country Power, are part of a national alliance of more than 750 unified local electric cooperatives across 46 states that adhere to the values of integrity, accountability, innovation and commitment to community.
