Calling All Communities returns for third year

The U.S. Cellular campaign that resulted in Heritage High School received $100,000 two years ago is returning to campuses everywhere with the prospect of benefitting deserving schools throughout the country.

U.S. Cellular on Aug. 26 announced exciting enhancements to its third annual $1 million Calling All Communities campaign. In May, the company revealed that it was increasing the number of winners from 10 to 18 schools in the community-driven campaign that awards thousands of dollars to schools to enhance learning opportunities for students across the country.

Today, U.S. Cellular announced that the school garnering the most votes will receive $150,000. The next 17 runners up will receive $50,000 each. Schools won’t be the only winners in this year’s campaign. Residents supporting Tennessee schools will have more opportunities to vote and enjoy rewards.

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 Each online voting code gives people the opportunity to vote once daily until the campaign ends.

The voting cards will feature a peel-off 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 wireless service. In addition, 2,000 randomly-selected voters will be awarded $25 U.S. Cellular debit cards simply for supporting their schools.

No purchase is necessary to vote. The winning schools will be announced in October and November.
