OK~ U.S. Cellular continues to keep our family connected while keeping communities involved in their education. As a member of U.S. Cellular's Better Moments Blogger Brigade, I am proud to announce that the Calling All Communities Campaign (CAC) runs for the fifth year, from November 4-25th in 2013. Since this program began in 2008, U.S. Cellular has awarded $4 million to 56 schools across the country. With this campaign getting ready to launch, now is the time to rally your troops!
You can rally your community by sharing this information at your local PTO Meeting, asking local businesses to share a printable flyer that will be available on the website, and maybe even get your school Principal involved; such as a pie-throwing contest. Each community is unique, so you can develop a game plan to help your school win $25,000. Yes, you read that correct. The top 20 schools that garner the most community votes will each win $25,000 to use as they wish to enhance their educational experience.
Past winning schools have outfitted their classrooms with computers, improved outdated infrastructure and renovated gymnasiums, kitchens and science labs. A few gave scholarships to graduating students while others donated some of their winnings to non-profits around the world.
Now is the time to rally the troops in your community. I know my local school district, the Mason City Community School District would benefit from this, as I am sure yours would too. Wouldn't it be fun to hear your local school district announced as a winner in 2013?
Keep in mind that when the program kicks off, there is only one vote per person, so you will need the entire community to get involved. I know that several school districts would benefit from what this program has to offer, so dig in now and spread the word. This is an opportunity to win a share of $500,000, which is not too shabby from my point of view.
For more information as to how you can locally become involved, visit our local U.S. Cellular store located at 1532 4th SW Mason City, Iowa.
Make a difference in the lives of the kids in your local community by helping spread the word. U.S. Cellular wants to support your local school district and strengthen the learning experience for thousands of students. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
