(Anchorage, Alaska) – Seven Calista Corporation Shareholders are winners of the regular Early Bird proxy prizes for the 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. All proxy prize winners are randomly drawn by Sramek Hightower, a certified public accounting firm in Anchorage that serves as the Inspector of Elections.

More than 12,000 Shareholders who cast their paper or online proxy votes by 5pm AKDT on May 23, qualified for the 2023 regular Early Bird prizes. The winners are:

  • $10,000 Prize – Phillip Tulik (Bethel)

  • $1,000 Prize – Agnes Andreanoff (Anchorage); Michael J. Andrews, Jr. (Emmonak); Kimberly J. White (Quinhagak); Grace K. Mochin (Nunapitchuk); and Gary A. Otto (Kongiganak).

More than 6 in 10 Elders who voted did so online, and nearly 7 in 10 voters finished voting in less than 3 minutes. Shareholders who voted online by the May 23 deadline also automatically qualified for all remaining rounds of prizes.

The deadline for the final round of prizes—the Online Regular and Regular proxy prize drawings—is 5pm AKDT on Tuesday, May 30. All valid paper and online proxies physically received by this deadline qualify. There are 10 prizes totaling $17,000.
