Several businesses have teamed up as part of Project Pay It Forward, a contest giving Park Hills, MO-area community members an opportunity to win a full restoration of an older project vehicle.
Mid-America Auto Body & Restorations said they received nearly 100 entries in the contest and have narrowed it down to the top 10.
“It was a process to go through everyone’s stories, and there were some long nominations,” said Steve Camden and Michael Haldaman, owners of Mid-America. “It’s very emotional, and everyone we have met has been an absolute honor to meet.”
Camden and Haldaman said it has been an amazing experience, and the best part has been getting to meet these people. Everyone should watch the videos and get to know these top 10 nominees from the mouths of the people they have impacted most.
“One guy said he was just a normal guy who just works and takes care of his family," a spokesperson said. “Every single one of these guys are just normal guys, and they go to work and take care of their family, but they forget about themselves. They are so humble; it’s overwhelming. We are really excited to work with everybody to do this.”
Mid-America owners said everything is on their website and that there are three ways to vote for a winner. They explained that everyone can vote all three ways. The most popular way to vote is through their Facebook page or on the Low Cash Classics Facebook page.
“They will like the post on the page to vote---not the YouTube video, but our post. The third way to vote is in person at any one of the voting stations. On both our website and Facebook page are videos of each contestant’s story and a bio.”
This gives everyone an opportunity to get to know each contestant and decide who will get their vote. At the end they will tally up the likes on each person’s post on the Facebook pages and then will count the paper votes. Voting ends on July 2.
