The Biz Foundry announces $1,000 prize dance contest

COOKEVILLE ​—​ To help businesses impacted by recent events, The Biz Foundry is holding a dance contest to award $1,000 cash to two local businesses. Participants should film a one to three minute long dance video that promotes their business in some way. The contest is open to any business located in one of the 14 Upper Cumberland counties. 

To further support both local commerce and the community, The Biz Foundry is also awarding two $250 certificates. ​One certificate will be given to a random lucky voter, and the other will be given to whoever shares their post on Facebook the most. Winners will be able to redeem certificates at their favorite businesses throughout the Upper Cumberland region.

“This is an exciting and fun opportunity for businesses and for the public to help each other out,” says Tiffany Anton, director of engagement and outreach at The Biz Foundry. “Thanks to our sponsors at Middle Tennessee Federal Credit Union, we hope to bring awareness of the wonderful businesses that are the fabric and character of our communities.” 

After the registration deadline, a panel of judges will select the top five videos in each category. The judging will be based on humor, dance, music selection, adherence to rules and how it suits the current environment. The winners will be determined by public vote, which will be hosted on The Biz Foundry’s Facebook page. Registration opens on June 15 and concludes June 30. Public voting will take place after July 1 and two business winners will be announced by July 15.
