Who Powers You

Adams Electric Cooperative, along with Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives, is pleased to announce the #WhoPowersYou Contest celebrating local heroes. It’s a chance for Adams Electric Cooperative members and employees to nominate someone making a difference in the community and an opportunity to celebrate the power of human connections. In addition to being nationally recognized, nominees can win up to $5,000 for the cause they champion.

To nominate a local hero in our service area, members and employees can go to whopowersyou.com and submit their nominee’s name, photo and a brief description of how they make a difference locally. Nominations open on September 8, 2020, and must be submitted by midnight on October 9, 2020.

An independent panel of judges will select winning entry based upon the positive community impact and creativity of the entry. The winners will be announced in October.

Prize money totaling $9,000 will be awarded as follows:

Grand Prize: $5,000
Second Place: $2,000
