How to nominate and vote
Learn more about our process to select Grant Recipients
Southern Tier Tuesdays is intended to be a vehicle driven by the community. Southern Tier residents are asked to go to nominate their favorite non-profit organization every month at southerntiertuesdays.com. Share a few lines of the story of impact you have seen or experienced so that others can see how organizations are doing good stuff all around us and transforming our communities daily.
Each month an independent committee will narrow nominations down to 12 finalists. Southern Tier residents are then asked to go to southerntiertuesdays.com engage with the stories shared by voting for those they find most compelling for a defined period the last few days of each month. The non-profit organizations winning the most votes will be recognized in the following month and receive a $2,000 grant from Upstate Shredding owner, Adam Weitsman and his daughter, Clover. 2
2. The number of organizations selected by popular vote will depend on the number of Tuesdays in the following month. Depending on the month, selected organizations will vary from four to five.
Each Tuesday, WBNG 12 News will feature a different grant recipient on Around The Tiers at 12:15pm. Not only will the non-profit organization receive their grant check on-air, they will share their story. Southern Tier Tuesdays will share more of the organization’s story throughout the week on Facebook and Instagram.
