Bannock Development Corporation sponsors Why I Love Southeastern Idaho contest

October 11, 2018

Bannock Development Corporation is sponsoring a “Why I love Southeastern Idaho” contest. Residents and visitors have the opportunity to express what they love about our magnificent and award-winning place we call home.

And you can win fabulous prizes, just for sharing what’s obvious to many of us.

Here’s the bottom line on why we’re doing this “Why I Love Southeastern Idaho” contest:

We Are Witnessing a Renaissance:

This Renaissance is attracting talent and industry, the fuel that is bringing this change. As Lance Buttars, owner of the highly successful Molinelli’s Jewelers so eloquently points out, “If a business owner sees another business owner describe how great life is here, they may want to be here too and decide to have a location in our community,”

We’re growing and we’re changing, yet we want to honor our legacy that so many have worked so hard to keep in place. Who better to describe our history and tell our new story than those who live, work and play here?

Enter into one of three categories: essay, photography or video. Details as follows:

· Essays must be 500 words or less

· Photo entries should obviously be taken in our area and could include landmarks, easily recognizable spots, stunning shots or secret hiding places you can easily explain or be felt.

o Submit one photograph and include a brief caption that will get the judges’ attention

· Video entries need to be kept to 2 minutes or we’ll make you watch our family vacation videos
