Sparklight to Award $12,000 to individuals building A Stronger Connection in their community

Sparklight today announced it will award $1,000 each to 12 individuals making a difference in the communities it serves as part of the internet service provider’s “A Stronger Connection” social media campaign.

Individuals throughout the 21 states Sparklight serves can nominate a fellow community member simply by sharing a photo and written entry outlining how the nominee works to build connections in their community – whether through volunteering, caregiving, teaching, as a first responder or myriad other ways. Three individuals will be selected to win each week for four weeks.

“Sparklight is committed to connecting our customers and communities to what matters most,” said Trish Niemann, Sparklight’s Senior Director of Corporate Communications. “We want to recognize those individuals in the communities we serve who are also building connections – those often-unsung heroes who make a lasting impact on the lives of their friends and neighbors.”

Entries will be accepted through Sept. 5 at sparklight.com/contest. Winning individuals will be highlighted on Sparklight’s social media channels, including Facebook and Instagram.
