Voting officially begins for U.S. Cellular’s (NYSE: USM) Calling All Communities Campaign on Sept. 9, but it’s not too early for people to start rallying and organizing their community to support their favorite schools. With a wider winner’s circle this year – 18 schools will win a share of $1 million as opposed to 10 in previous years – there is even more incentive to spread the word before the campaign begins. The top vote-receiving school will win $150,000, and the next 17 will each receive $50,000.
“Start spreading the word to friends, families and neighbors that Calling All Communities is coming back,” said Jack Brundige, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in western North Carolina. “We also invite everyone to stop by any U.S. Cellular store and talk to our associates about the upcoming campaign and learn about our cutting-edge devices and unique benefits. Our western North Carolina associates are proud of this program and love to hear the creative ways communities come together to support their schools.”
Between Sept. 9 and Oct. 6, anyone 18 years or older can visit any U.S. Cellular store and ask an associate for a code to vote for their favorite school at uscellular.com. Each voting code gives people the opportunity to vote online once daily until the campaign ends. The voting cards will feature a peel-off sticker that gives thousands of lucky supporters a chance to cast two votes a day or be one of 18 people to win one year of free U.S. Cellular
