Markham Vineyards, the Napa Valley winery distributed by Terlato Wines, recently announced its call for applications for the 3rd Annual Mark of Distinction program.

As we noted last year, the Mark of Distinction program, which started in 2008, rewards two winners with $25,000 grants each to help them “make a lasting change in their communities.”

Nominations can be made online any time prior to July 19th–you’ll just need to write-up a quick (no more than 300 word) proposal and a ‘brief’ budget detailing how you’ll use the $25K.

On August 10th ten finalists will be chosen and featured on the website, at which time the public will be able to vote for their two favorite projects.

Last year’s recipients were Long Island Sled Hockey from Lynbrook, NY and The Paul Ruby Foundation in Geneva, IL.
