One town. One pic. One MAJOR upgrade.


 The City of Fort Scott is seeking nominations from the community to enter a Hometown Techover Contest offered by T-Mobile.


T-Mobile is offering one lucky town the makeover of their dreams with a tech upgrade valued at $3 million.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for one small town to get a multi-million-dollar Techover.


Cities can have multiple nominations which will show community support.  The nomination form is simple, upload a photo or video of Fort Scott and tell what makes it special.  Entries must be submitted by 8pm on Friday, May 7th.   Complete nominations at


If selected, the City intends to utilize this opportunity for downtown placemaking projects.

“Placemaking projects assist in developing a community’s identity, which in turn not only creates a deeper connection for the locals who call that community home, but also shapes a place that people are inspired to visit.” said Allyson Turvey, Community Development and Tourism Manager.


Downtown Fort Scott has overcome devastation from the 2005 fire creating a remarkable destination.  “While the accessibility of US 69 provides tremendous convenience, the downtown is the heart of our community.  What an incredible story of rebuilding the local economy.  The downtown district offers unique urban amenities in an unwavering and welcoming rural community” according to Rachel Pruitt, Economic Development Director.


Complete nominations at no later than 8pm on Friday, May 7th.  Additional information on the Hometown Techover Contest at
