NIPCO and fellow generation and transmission cooperatives that serve members in Iowa are, once again, coming together to financially support a cooperative presence at the 2021 Iowa State Fair. The Touchstone Energy Cooperatives of Iowa annually sponsor the Bruce Rastetter 4-H Exhibits Building on the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Iowa G&Ts are proud to promote the Touchstone Energy brand as a nationwide network of locally owned co-ops that provides resources and leverages partnerships to help member-consumers use energy wisely.
If you’re planning a visit to the Iowa State Fair this summer, make sure to stop by and see cooperative employees who are staffing the booth in the newly renovated 4-H Exhibits Building on the southwest corner of the fairgrounds.
Electric co-op staff from across the state will promote programs offered by electric cooperatives for their members and hand out plastic hard hats for the kids while supplies last. They can also try on some lineworker safety gear and take fun photos in the co-op safety selfie station!
Electric co-op members who take a quick survey via iPads stationed within the booth will automatically be entered into a drawing. After the fair, three lucky winners will be randomly selected from all who participate in the survey to choose one of three prize options:
- Roomba 614 Robot Vacuum
- DEWALT 20V MAX XR Blower
- Breville Smart Oven Pro
Winners from the Iowa Shine the Light community volunteer recognition contest will also be announced during the fair. Iowa electric co-op member-consumers and employees had an opportunity to nominate local community volunteers for the contest in June. Three deserving volunteers will each receive a $1,500 donation for their charity as Iowa electric cooperatives celebrate cooperative commitment to community.
Iowa's electric cooperatives look forward to connecting with co-op members at the Iowa State Fair this summer. Please stop by the booth and say hello!
