Please Help Out Benkelman, NE Beat Bigger Cities Around The Nation

Benkelman, Nebraska is asking for help from all Nebraskans. They are competing in a Reader's Digest contest in which they're asking you to vote for them so that they can receive some $$$ to help their town. 

As a guy who grew up in a small town in Western Nebraska, I understand their plight. The population decrease due to the rise in productivity of the American farmer means it can be difficult to bring in jobs and business. 

Husker fans are great - the best in the nation - at voting for players when they need to win a contest. I'd ask that you do the same for Benkelman, Nebraska. 

Here's their request: 

Like most small towns, Benkelman NE is struggling to save our downtown.

We have come up with a plan to revitalize our community with niche businesses.

We are running 11th place in the Reader's Digest WE HEAR YOU AMERICAN sweepstakes.

We need to be in the top 10 to win money that can help us market our revitalization plan. Time is running out...please help us by cheering for zip code 69021.

 Help bring this money into the great state of Nebraska!!
