I took this off the Swift Current is Riderville Facebook page. Kudos to Meaghan and the crew at Great Plains College for spearheading this...
With the Rider’s Centennial Anniversary in 2010, a contest has been launched in the province to determine where the best fans live. We believe they are right here in Swift Current! Great Plains College is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with Swift Current Minor Football to ensure Swift Current is given the title of Riderville!
The winners of the Riderville contest will be awarded $25,000.00 to our local minor football program, a football camp with everyone from Rider players, personnel and cheerleaders held in our community, and a sign declaring our community Riderville. To win, a video and essay submission must be completed by June 15th with the top 5 announced at the season opener, Canada Day weekend. Voting will then begin on the top five videos as well as a celebration held in each of the top 5 communities for the selection committee and sponsors to view. The Ride This! Event on August 28th at the Stockade hosted by Great Plains College will serve as the community celebration. The final winner will be announced at the Labor Day game in Regina.
Currently, Great Plains College is working on the video and essay nominating Swift Current as Riderville! We already know that we are Riderville, now we just need to let the rest of the province know!
We need your help! If you have an unique Rider display in your business or household that you would like to be featured in our video please let contact Meaghan Lawrence at Great Plains College ASAP. Call 778-5460 or email [email protected]
