Onsharp and the Minn-Kota Region of the American Red Cross have teamed up to give North Dakota and Northern Minnesota residents an easy way to register for the contest. The custom-built website, ReadyDakota.org, was created and is currently being hosted by Onsharp.
Community members can register at ReadyDakota.org once a day by filling out a short, online form.
With the help of partners like Onsharp, State Farm, KFYR-TV in Bismarck, KMOT-TV in Minot and KVLY-TV in Fargo, the Red Cross is able to give-away 90 personal survival kits that include necessary items for an emergency situations such as a radio, water pouch, flashlight, body warmers, blanket, and more. Two winners will be selected each weekday over the duration of the contest.
