Carrier Offers Tips That Schools Can Use to Start Planning Their Campaigns
CHICAGO, May 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Cellular (NYSE:USM) announced today that its Calling All Communities campaign will return for the fourth year this September. It challenges schools to rally community support for the chance to win a share of $1 million to fund the projects their students need the most. The school that garners the most community votes will win $150,000 with the next 17 schools each receiving $50,000. Schools are encouraged to take advantage of the summer months to start building their winning campaigns early.
"Calling All Communities gives schools in the towns and cities where we live and work the opportunity to earn the funding they need to invest in the areas most critical to their students' learning experiences," said Carter S. Elenz, executive vice president of sales and customer service for U.S. Cellular. "We are committed to education and this annual campaign is a great way to engage entire communities to rally for a common goal."
"We've learned that it takes a team of dedicated parents, teachers and community members to be successful," added Elenz. "Now is the time for communities to get an early start on organizing their campaigns so they're ready for September."
U.S. Cellular gathered advice from past winners to help schools get a head start on planning for their Calling All Communities campaigns:
