Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017.
To mark the occasion the TNRD has designed a special website – 50th.tnrd.ca/ – focused on the regional district’s history and the upcoming events and contests the TNRD has planned for the occasion.
Throughout the year, the TNRD will be holding local community events, hosting contests and sharing news and information about the TNRD as part of its 50th anniversary celebration. All of this information will be accessible at 50th.tnrd.ca/.
To kick off this momentous year in the TNRD’s history, here are a couple of contests that get underway immediately:
• Trivia Contest: Every week, a different trivia question will be posed with a prize awarded each month to one of the respondents who has answered one of that month’strivia questions correctly. On Nov. 24, the names of all of the respondents who have correctly answered a trivia question throughout the year will be entered into a draw for a 50th anniversary celebration prize.
• Writing Contest: From April 1 to May 31, the TNRD will accept submissions for short stories and poems featuring an aspect of the TNRD – either a location, an event or a person from history. The maximum length of a story is 1,500 words and it can be any genre. Poems can be one page long.
