Contest Could Net $10,000 for City's Independence Day Events

North Las Vegas could receive $10,000 toward its Independence Day celebration as part of the Bring Back the 4th Contest, sponsored by Liberty Mutual.

Through June 14, the online contest allows cities and towns across America to compete for one of ten $10,000 grants to support official 4th of July celebrations. To participate, go to www.BringBackThe4th.com to take a brief quiz on "Responsible Moments in U.S. History." The quiz features eight questions about Americans who helped shape our nation and inspire others, from historical icons to everyday people who made important contributions.

Facing a budget shortfall of more than $22 million, North Las Vegas plans to charge a $2 admission fee this year for its previously free Independence Day Jubilee on July 2. Officials believe the fee could generate about $50,000 toward the $117,000 cost of the events.
