After weeks of social media promoting and an enthusiastic online voting campaign, the Red Wing community will find out this afternoon if the city earned enough votes to win the Small Business Revolution Main Street series contest.

The announcement will be broadcast on the Small Business Revolution Facebook page here:

Red Wing is one of five finalists vying for the $500,000 prize, which would go to providing support for local businesses as well as a community wide project. The contest is sponsored by Deluxe Corporation, a check printing and business services company.

Check back with the Republican Eagle for more information and reaction to the announcement.
