Print Article

Bannock Development Corporation is sponsoring a “Why I love Southeastern Idaho” contest. Residents and visitors have the opportunity to express what they love about our magnificent and award-winning place we call home.

And you can win fabulous prizes, just for sharing what’s obvious to many of us.

Here’s the bottom line on why we’re doing this “Why I Love Southeastern Idaho” contest:

We Are Witnessing a Renaissance:

This Renaissance is attracting talent and industry, the fuel that is bringing this change. As Lance Buttars, owner of the highly successful Molinelli’s Jewelers so eloquently points out, “If a business owner sees another business owner describe how great life is here, they may want to be here too and decide to have a location in our community,”

We’re growing and we’re changing, yet we want to honor our legacy that so many have worked so hard to keep in place. Who better to describe our history and tell our new story than those who live, work and play here?
