Ameren Missouri's Community Lights Contest

With the holiday lights starting to shine, itâ??s time to recognize those weâ??re most thankful for in our communities: our volunteers.

Ameren Missouriâ??s Community Lights Contest is a celebration of volunteerism, asking individuals to recognize that special person who gives their time, efforts and heart to make our communities brighter places and improve the quality of life for others. All in all, Ameren Missouri will donate $37,500 to 10 outstanding volunteers and 10 organizations across the state of Missouri. Annette Sweet stopped by the set of Good Morning Heartland to fill us in on all the details. WATCH VIDEO Above to learn all the rules and regulations.
