Local internet provider offers science funding


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Schools and organizations serving K-12 students in the communities in 21 states that Sparklight serves have the opportunity to win $3,000 to fund their science, technology, engineering or math project or club as part of the internet service provider’s annual “Dream Bigger” campaign.

The deadline for entering is Friday. K-12 schools and organizations 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 otherwise — and how it benefits students. Five entities will be selected to each receive a $3,000 award.

“The diverse and innovative ways students in the communities we serve utilize technology both inside and outside of the classroom is impressive and paves the way for our future,” said Trish Niemann, Sparklight’s senior director of corporate communications. “In an increasingly digital world, made more evident during the coronavirus pandemic, we are excited to see how technology is helping students dream bigger, and we want to do our part to help make those dreams happen.”

Ten finalists will be selected by Sparklight and the winner will be determined by public voting from March 22 through March 31. The finalists and winners also will be highlighted on Sparklight’s social media channels.
