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. 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’s Around the Tiers host Kara Conrad will feature a different grant recipient on the program 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 organizations story throughout the week on social media and with Tier Talks on Facebook.
