Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Schools and organizations serving K-12 students in communities served by the internet provider Sparklight have the opportunity to win $3,000 to fund their technology project or club as part of the company’s annual “Dream Bigger” social media campaign.

K-12 schools and organizations in 21 states can enter to win simply by sharing a photo and written entry outlining how the money will be used to fund their technology project — whether for equipment, competition fees, field trips or other items — and how the project benefits students. Five entities will be selected to each receive a $3,000 prize.

“We are continuously impressed by the diverse and innovative ways students in our communities are utilizing technology both inside and outside of the classroom,” said Trish Niemann, Sparklight’s senior director of corporate communications.

“In an increasingly digital world, today’s students are the architects of our future,” she said. “We are excited to see how technology is helping students in the communities we serve dream bigger, and we want to do our part to help make those dreams happen.”

Entries will be accepted through March 20 at sparklight.com/contest. Ten finalists will be selected by Sparklight, and the winner will be determined by public voting from March 23 through March 27. The finalists, as well as the schools and organizations selected to receive the donations, will be highlighted on Sparklight’s social media channels.
