Schools and organizations serving kindergarten through 12th-grade students in Sparklight communities could win $3,000 to fund their science, technology, engineering or math project or club as part of the internet service provider’s fourth annual “Dream Bigger” social media campaign.

K-12 schools and organizations in communities throughout the 21 states Sparklight serves can enter to win by sharing a photo and essay 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 $3,000.

“Through our continued commitment to connecting the communities we serve, we are proud to provide resources enabling enhanced learning opportunities for the bright minds of the future,” said Trish Niemann, vice president of Communications Strategy. “We are excited to see how the leaders of tomorrow will utilize technology, both inside and outside the classroom, to dream bigger through diverse and innovative ways.”

Entries will be accepted from Tuesday through March 21 at Sparklight will select 10 finalists, and the winner will be determined by public voting March 24-31.

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 at and Instagram at
