Richardson Pioneer Community Celebration
The 2022 Grey Cup Festival may not occur until November in Regina; however, Richardson Pioneer and the Festival committee want to help bring the excitement to your community well before that with the Richardson Pioneer Rider Nation Community Celebration contest!
The Richardson Pioneer Rider Nation Community Celebration is a one-day party that six (6) communities from across Saskatchewan will experience this year featuring the Grey Cup trophy, personnel from the Saskatchewan Roughriders including prominent alumni and members of the Game Day Entertainment teams such as the 620 CKRM Rider Cheer Team, Gainer the Gopher and much more along to celebrate and congratulate your community.
Each winning community receives a $25,000 donation from Richardson Pioneer toward a specific, community project having a focus on sport, culture and recreation. A community is defined as a rural municipality, village, town, small city or a First Nation within Saskatchewan.
All you need to do is fill out this application and tell us why your community project and subsequent celebration/fundraiser event should be selected as one of the winners!
Applications have now closed! Stay tuned for an announcement regarding the Richardson Pioneer Rider Nation Community Celebration.
