There are five more winners for Project 10K20 Saskatchewan.

Each band will receive $10,000 to record, mix and master a full length CD, through the program created by Rawlco Radio

Foam Lake is a rock band of four blood brothers out of Saskatoon, named after the town where their mother was raised.

Saskatoon country rock band, Wyatt, is a four-piece group with a good history so far in Saskatchewan. They have been voted "Group of the Year" twice at the Saskatchewan Country Music Awards.

Val Halla is out of Regina and has opened for the likes of Alice Cooper and Burton Cummings of the Guess Who.

Regina's Tyler Gilbert is a musician of many talents playing guitar, piano, bass and harmonica — he plays a mix of new-folk songs with soulful vocals.

Cities Under Fire out of North Battleford has already won "Modern Rock/Alternative Album of the Year" at the 2011 GMA Canada awards.

Rawlco Radio will continue to announce Project 10K20 recipients in March and September of each year to 2014. There are still 40 more artists to announce.

"We are half way through Project 10K20 having announced 40 artists and we're still receiving a number of outstanding applications throughout Saskatchewan. This truly shows the amount of talent we have within our province," said Harreson James, the director of Project 10K20 Saskatchewan.

Applications are still being accepted.
