Tom Noble, an Edmond resident, has been selected as one of three finalists in John Deere’s “Small Machines. Big Impact.” contest. Noble is trying to win a new Deere 333G Compact Track Loader and WorkSite Pro hydraulic breaker to be used rebuilding athletic fields for Oklahoma City Public Schools.

 

Noble, co-owner of Cimarron Construction Co., Inc., entered the contest based on his work with Oklahoma City non-profit organization Fields & Futures to rebuild 44 athletic fields for Oklahoma City Public Schools. Currently, 22 fields within the school district have been rebuilt. Fields & Futures’ mission is to grow student participation in sports, inspire students to stay in school, and graduate.

 

“We’re extremely proud of Tom and Cimarron Construction for what they continue to accomplish through the Fields & Futures initiative,” said Steve Decker, Sr. VP, Operations at CL Boyd, the John Deere Construction & Forestry dealer in the Oklahoma City area. “They are doing more than building athletic fields. They are changing the entire trajectory of kids’ lives, families, schools and the entire Oklahoma City metropolitan area. We are excited to help Tom gather the online votes needed to win this contest so he can continue to make a big impact in our community,” Decker added.

 

From June 15 to July 5, the public is invited to view the three finalists’ community projects and help select the winner of a new Deere G-Series skid steer or compact track loader. You can view finalist videos and vote for a winner at Deere.com/Impact. “The voting starts June 15. You can vote once per day per email address. Please vote daily and tell everyone you know and ask them to vote too,” noted Decker.

 

John Deere launched the “Small Machines. Big Impact.” contest on March 7, 2017 at CONEXPO-CON/AGG. From March 7 to April 30, individuals from the U.S. landscaping, agriculture, and construction industries were invited to submit an entry detailing what kind of impact they would make in their community with a Deere G-Series skid steer or compact track loader.

The three finalists and their projects were selected from over 650 entries by John Deere based on the following criteria: community impact; alignment with one of the John Deere Corporate Citizenship priorities; and the value a John Deere skid steer or compact track loader would add to the project.

 

Following the finalist selection and public voting period, the grand-prize winner of the contest will be announced on July 10 as part of the 2017 John Deere Classic PGA golf tournament. The winner will receive a new John Deere G-Series skid steer or compact track loader to put the muscle of the machine to community good. The two runner-ups will win a year-long lease on a skid steer or compact track loader from John Deere Financial.
