Edberg is one of three communities in Western Canada to receive $20,000 for community initiatives from the “This is Where Stellar Shines” contest sponsored by Dow AgroSciences.
The funds were donated in the name of contestant Darry Olsen for the Village of Edberg, which has decided to use its winnings to refurbish the community outdoor skating rink and community hall, and to purchase a maintenance shed.
The other two winners were from Kelvington, Sask. and Swan River, Man. The three winning contestants will also receive 80 acres of Stellar herbicide.
“Dow AgroSciences believes in the future of rural communities in Western Canada,” Kelly Bennett of Dow AgroSciences said in a release. “We wanted to invest in the places where our customers live and work.”
