They include "Constellation of Starke," which consists of the communities of Hamlet, Knox, North Judson and Starke County, and "Jay! Region," which encompasses Dunkirk, Portland, Pennville, Redkey and Jay County.

The two other regional finalists are "Marshall County Crossroads," which comprises Argos, Bourbon, Bremen, Culver, Plymouth and Marshall County, and "Safe and Welcome," which encompasses Knightstown, New Castle and Henry County.
