And the winner is... a Minnesota couple who help others learn about the Gunflint Trail; a program aimed at improving communication between Indigenous tribes and its surrounding community; and an effort to provide more child care options for families in the middle of a pandemic.
Those were the recipients of the 2020 Touchstone Awards announced Tuesday by the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.
The Touchstone Awards recognize some of the best nonprofit work being done in northern Minnesota and northern Wisconsin. It's the program's 26th year recognizing work that's improving lives in the Northland.
In a broadcast on WDIO, news anchor Renee Passal and Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation interim president Dave Montgomery announced the 2020 recipients, which will each receive a grant of $2500. Other finalists will receive grants of $500 each.
