Sparklight to Award $15,000 to Help Students Dream Bigger

Five winners to each receive $3,000 to support K-12 STEM projects


Schools and organizations serving K-12 students in Sparklight communities 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” social media campaign.  

K-12 schools and organizations in communities throughout the 21 states Sparklight serves 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.”  

Entries will be accepted from March 1 through March 19 at Ten finalists will be  selected by Sparklight and the winner will be determined by public voting from March 22 through March  31. The finalists – as well as the schools and organizations selected to receive the award – will be  highlighted on Sparklight’s social media channels, including Facebook and Instagram.
