First National Bank Seeking Nominations for 2018 Community First Awards

Attention Non-Profits: what could you do with an extra $25,000?

Nominate your organization for a chance to win $25,000 to support a project that will impact our community

  • Nonprofits Nominate Themselves: Starts Today!
    From now through August 6, we’re inviting nonprofit organizations to nominate their community project or program for a chance to receive the $25,000 donation. Nominations can only be made using the online nomination form, and must be submitted by the nonprofit organizations themselves (no individual or third party entries allowed). However, you can share the nomination link with nonprofit organizations and encourage them to apply!
  • Finalist Selected by FNB Employees: August 14 to August 20
    All nominations will be evaluated for eligibility and alignment with the contest rules and our community priorities. The qualifying nominations will then be separated by market and presented to employees via SharePoint for voting on their favorite project from their market. The top 15 to 20 projects will then advance to the public vote.
  • Public Vote: August 27 to September 7
    During this timeframe, individuals may place one daily vote for their favorite nonprofit organization. There will be three winners total: one first place winner will receive $25,000, one second place winner will receive $10,000, and one third place winner will receive $5,000 for the project or program they identified.
  • Winners Announced: Mid-September
    The winners will be announced via a press release and social media in mid-September!
