There are $200 in shop­ping vouch­ers up for grabs in the SOUTH­ERN RIVE­RINA NEWS pro­mo­tion, with four $50 weekly draws.

Vouch­ers can be spent at any lo­cal par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses.

The first weekly draw will be next week.

To win, all you have to do is find and an­swer the ques­tion in the ad­ver­tise­ment on this page. Fill out the pro­vided coupon and drop it into the South­ern Rive­rina News of­fice by noon Mon­day.

A new ques­tion will ap­pear each week, and win­ners will be drawn on Mon­day af­ter­noons.

While you’re find­ing your ques­tion, make sure to check out some of the great deals be­ing of­fered by par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses.

Fin­ley Cham­ber of Com­merce, In­dus­try and Agri­cul­ture sec­re­tary Sue Hill said the pro­mo­tion is a way of en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to shop lo­cal, and re­ward­ing them for do­ing so.

‘‘If the lo­cal busi­nesses are sup­ported and suc­cess­ful, then there are ben­e­fi­cial flow on ef­fects to the com­mu­nity,’’ she said.

‘‘This could in­clude ben­e­fits for the sport­ing clubs, schools, health ser­vices and com­mu­nity well­be­ing.

‘‘It’s vi­tal for lo­cal dol­lars to stay in town as it will cre­ate more em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.’’

Jen­nifer McNa­mara was a lucky weekly win­ner in last year’s Shop Lo­cally and Win pro­mo­tion.
