After receiving community project ideas from across the nation, John Deere selected three finalists in its “Small Machines. Big Impact.” contest who each have a chance to win a new G-Series skid steer or compact track loader (CTL) with a WorkSite Pro attachment.
The finalists are:
- Daryl Bridenbaugh — Building Houses and Hope in Putnam County, Ohio
- Eric Moores — Teaching Tomorrow’s Builders in Woodbine, Iowa
- Tom Noble — Fielding Student Success in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
“It is inspiring to hear from people around the country making a difference in their communities and wanting to do even more using John Deere G-Series machines,” said Graham Hinch, division manager, John Deere Commercial Worksite Products. “We look forward to hearing from the public as they help choose our winner in the voting process.”
From June 15 to July 5, the public is invited to help choose which of the finalists’ community projects will become a reality with the power of a G-Series machine. You can view finalist videos and vote for a winner at Deere.com/Impact.
The three finalists and their projects were selected by John Deere based on the following criteria: community impact; alignment with one of the John Deere Corporate Citizenship priorities; and the value a John Deere skid steer or compact track loader would add to the project.
John Deere launched the “Small Machines. Big Impact.” contest on March 7, 2017 at CONEXPO-CON/AGG. From March 7 to April 30, individuals from the U.S. landscaping, agriculture, and construction industries were invited to submit an entry detailing what kind of impact they would make in their community with a G-Series machine.
Following the finalist selection and public voting period, the grand-prize winner of the contest will be announced on July 10 as part of the 2017 John Deere Classic. The winner will receive a new John Deere G-Series skid steer or CTL to put the muscle of the machine to community good. The two runner-ups will win a yearlong lease on a skid steer or CTL from John Deere Financial.
