LAUREL – A northeast Nebraska 4-H club received funds through U.S. Cellular’s Community Connections Program.
According to a release from U.S. Cellular, Laurel Bit and Bridle 4-H Club was awarded $1,000 for STEM learning opportunities.
For the sixth year in a row, youth-focused organizations can earn up to $1,000 through the Community Connections program online. Whether it’s a Little League baseball team, high school debate club, marching band, youth cheer squad or a variety of other groups, organizers can sign up their group at uscellular.com/communityconnections to earn sponsorship support.
Once registered, local nonprofit academic and athletic groups that represent youth up to 12th grade have two weeks to rally their friends, families and supporters to complete online activities that include short surveys, watching videos and/or following U.S. Cellular on its social channels.
Since launching the program in 2015, U.S. Cellular has awarded $1.4 million to nearly 3,000 groups nationwide.
