Community Kids Space in Bancroft is $5,000 richer thanks to a contest.

McDougall Insurance & Financial held the McDougall Family Fund contest giving a deserving community initiative $5,000 to put towards their local project. Organizations had to put together a short video describing the organization or group, how it helps the community, and how the money would be used. After 10 finalists were picked, people had a chance to vote on one of the projects and coming in first place was Community Kids Space.

The video entry explains that the money will be used to create a space for kids to come, have fun and be active.

The 2nd place winner was also from the area. Receiving $3,000 was Home Again Animal Rescue in L’Amable.
