Kubota Canada Ltd. Launches the Community Hero 2020 Challenge


Markham, Ontario, September 15, 2020 Kubota Canada Ltd. (KCL) and the Canadian Football League (CFL) partner together for the third consecutive year to launch the Community Hero 2020 Challenge.

Community Hero

Now in its fourth edition, the Community Hero Challenge is an opportunity to highlight and commemorate individuals making a positive impact in their communities across the country.

With over 100 entries last year from towns like Pugwash, Nova Scotia and Alida, Saskatchewan, Kubota and the CFL aim to strengthen local bonds and showcase people who help and support their towns.

Previous contest winners like Robert Morse (Quebec City) from last year’s Community Hero Farm Edition were rewarded with exclusive Grey Cup trips and experiences to host cities. Despite the impact of COVID-19 and uncertainty, Kubota and the CFL believe there is still a way to show gratitude and appreciation for hardworking heroes making a difference.

For this edition of the Community Hero, three winners will be selected by a committee composed of Kubota and CFL’s executives. The chosen Community Heroes will receive a CFL x Kubota Special Edition Broil-King Regal PRO BBQ set. These high-quality BBQ units are ideal for a family get together.

“There are plenty of heroes in our communities that deserve our thanks. So this year more than ever, Kubota in partnership with our friends at the CFL, is very proud to provide the opportunity for people who have a positive impact on others to be nominated and recognized through our Community Hero program,”said Rob Allison, Brand Director for Kubota Canada Ltd.

To enter Kubota’s Community Hero 2020 Challenge, individuals may nominate their hero at Kubota.ca/communityhero by filling up the form and following the instructions listed. Contest runs from September 8 to October 9, 2020 11:59 PM EST. The winners will be announced on October 23, 2020. The challenge is open to Canadian citizens only.

Follow Kubota on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to learn more about the Community Hero Challenge and share your experiences with us by using the #CommunityHeroChallenge hashtag and tagging Kubota in your posts.
