This fall, Seth Beyer and his work colleagues donated over 55 hours of work and supplies to help complete our new wrestling room.  Seth has entered this project into a contest and we need your help at a chance to earn $2500 for the ZM Wrestling program courtesy of Cargill!

Here is the most important part: we need you to like the photo Seth has posted on the Cargill Cares Facebook page.  CLICK HERE FOR THE LINK.

You can also like the photo as shared on the ZM Wrestling Facebook timeline.  It is important to like the photo, not just the shared post.

Deadline for the contest is Thursday, December 5 at 12:00 noon CST.  So don’t wait!

As part of International Volunteer Day, December 5, Cargill will honor its volunteers and present three Cargill Cares Volunteer Awards (with a US$2,500 charitable grant).  The top three photos that receive the most likes on a photo they post to the new Cargill Cares Facebook page will each win a Cargill Cares Volunteer Award.
