Creston entered in ultimate fishing town contest

Web Lead

Myrna Johnson is at it again — and this time she’s entered Creston in the World Fishing Network’s ultimate fishing town contest.

She has entered Creston in several contests before, and this time the grand prize is a $25,000 community donation to be used for fishing-related causes in the winning town, a feature about the winning town produced and broadcast on WFN, and an official cheque presentation and media event with WFN in the winning town. Second prize is $5,000 and third is $2,500.

With 179 places entered, Creston needs as much support as possible to help it rise above the pack. The top five are currently Cape Hatteras, N.C., Wauconda, Ill., Lac La Biche, Alta., Temegami, Ont., and Del Rio, Texas.

“We will show both the U.S.A. and Canada how Creston Valley has spirit and pride,” she said. “Remember all those great fishing spots and memories!”
