VINCE GILL has joined the AMERICA'S BEST COMMUNITIES (ABC) partnership in an effort to revitalize small towns across AMERICA in association with FRONTIER COMMUNICATIONS, DISH NETWORK, and COBANK.
"There's a lot of small town community in me," explained GILL. "I have a small town mentality. This is where I live, and I want to make it better; I want to be part of a team focused on supporting the backbone of AMERICA."
The AMERICA'S BEST COMMUNITIES competition will award $10 million in prize money to communities with the best business plans for economic development and improved quality of life. There are already more than 200 participating communities across 27 states. The registration deadline is WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25th. Fifty quarter-finalists will then be selected in APRIL and awarded $50,000 in development funds. At the conclusion of the competition in APRIL 2017, the winner will receive a $3 million grand prize with $2 million going to second place and $1 million to third, with all prize money being allotted to continue implementation of the communities' improvement plans.
