McDougall Community Contest 2024

What is the McDougall Community Contest?

This McDougall Community Contest is open to non-profit organizations and community groups across Ontario! Now in our 11th year, we're excited to be able to award three prizes worth a total of $10,000 to local community projects. You could be a 2024 winner!

Fun Fact: Each and every video submission we receive will have a chance at winning the grand prize. Since this is a community contest, you do not have to be a McDougall Insurance client to enter! Once the voting round begins it will be up to the community to cast their votes and ultimately select our winners.

We welcome all types of community projects. 

Here are a few of our previous winning community projects:

Backpacks for Youth

Playground Equipment

Animal Rescue Centre

Spay & Neuter Initiative

Accessible Swing

Local Food Bank

Stirling Public School KinderGARDEN

Kash's Kreations 

Levack Bike Park

A few more examples may include a rescue farm, community garden, upgrades to a community centre or perhaps you want to help build a splash pad at a local park. Get creative, just make sure you submit a video explaining how your project benefits your community! The possibilities are endless and your community will thank you
