Taylorville Community Credit Union has announced that voting to determine the winners of their eight $1000 awards has begun and continues through February 29th, 2024. Two seniors from Taylorville High School who registered for this year’s “Stop.Shop.Vote” campaign will receive $1000 awards toward their continuing education. Winners are determined by the number of votes cast by area shoppers in the participating businesses.
Eight high school seniors, two from Taylorville, Hillsboro, Litchfield, and Pana High Schools, will receive awards. TCCU President Will Perkins says this is the tenth year for the program and that each year it has received more support and recognition as a valuable resource to graduating high school seniors who plan to go on to trade school, two-year community college, or four-year university programs.
TCCU’s scholarship program will also help local businesses as shoppers can cast one vote for every ten dollars they spend in participating local businesses. Among businesses that are participating include Amenities on Main, Anderson Jewelers, Angelo’s, Audrey’s Boutique and Luxuries, Battery Specialists, Bundles & Bliss, Country Kitchen, Florinda’s, Fur Love, Glik’s Hair Studio, Happy Baked Goods, Hello Beautiful, JMA Pawn Jewelry & Loan, Karma, Kompliments, Little Luxuries, Lock Up Gym, Nesties, Powderkeg Outfitters, Shadow Box, Shoe Sensation, Southern Belle Florist, Suessie’s Resale, Sydney Lynn’s Little Book Shop & Vinyl, The Upper Cut, Uprooted, Vintage Dresser, The Wooden Flower, Wright Furniture, and Zone Nutrition.
Perkins says there is no limit to how many of the participating stores residents can shop in, or how many times they visit them between now and February 29th, 2024. All businesses will display large posters in their windows and have ballots and ballot boxes available for all votes cast. Awards will be presented in May.
