Wadena Boy Scouts Troop 54 Wins Award

Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative (TWEC) names Wadena Boy Scouts Troop 54 as the winner of the 2019 Touchstone Energy Community Award. The Wadena Boy Scouts received $500 to be used towards their community projects.

Boy Scouts provides young men and women an opportunity to obtain leadership skills and offers life-long learning skills to participants. These skills include, but are not limited to: first aid, lifesaving skills, emergency preparedness, canoeing, money management, personal fitness, and more.

“The Wadena Boy Scouts Troop 54 demonstrates a strong commitment to community and to the youth that we at TWEC value highly,” said Allison Uselman, Member Services Manager. “We are very pleased to recognize their contributions to our local communities and schools.”

Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative sought candidates for the Touchstone Energy Community Award, which recognizes organizations for outstanding contributions to the local community. “This area is blessed with many organizations that are doing wonderful things to better our community,” Allison Uselman said. “We are pleased that as a Minnesota Touchstone Energy cooperative, we have this opportunity to recognize those who impact our community in a positive way.”

Wadena Boy Scouts Troop 54 award application has been submitted for consideration in the statewide Minnesota Touchstone Energy Community Award. The statewide award recipient will be selected from local award winners from around Minnesota. The winning organization will receive $1,000 to go toward their community cause. The Minnesota Touchstone Energy Community Award will be presented to the award recipient in February, during the Minnesota Rural Electric Association’s annual meeting in St. Paul.
