Twenty finalists have been chosen and only 10 will remain to share $100,000 in MTS Future First community grants.
Until April 19, Manitobans can vote for their pick of the youth serving organizations to share the corporate grant. A shortlist of 15 projects will move forward to a final selection committee of community leaders who will determine the final 10 community grants recipients for 2014.
“We received more than 100 outstanding applications, and now we want as many Manitobans as possible to be involved in the selection process,” said MTS CEO Pierre Blouin. “MTS Future First is all about supporting young Manitobans and creating the kind of community we want for generations to come.”
MTS will present the 10 grants of $10,000 each on Manitoba Day, May 12.
