U.S. Cellular Celebrates the Next Generation as the Future of Good

December 3, 2019 GMT

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 3, 2019--

On Giving Tuesday, U.S. Cellular’s The Future of Good program returns for its fifth consecutive year, to champion and invest in young people who are bringing fairness to their communities. U.S. Cellular is raising awareness for youth causes and increasing their impact through financial contributions.

From December 3, 2019 through April 15, 2020, anyone over the age of 18 is encouraged to visit thefutureofgood.uscellular.com to nominate young people ages six through 17, who are making a positive impact in U.S. Cellular communities. U.S. Cellular will ultimately announce six winners – three in February and another three in May. These six individuals will join the community of over 40 extraordinary The Future of Good winners and receive $10,000 each to put toward their cause. Their stories will also be featured on thefutureofgood.uscellular.com.

“More common today, when youth see something unfair, they do something about it,” said Verchele Roberts, vice president of brand marketing at U.S. Cellular. “The Future of Good program celebrates those that turn an injustice into a positive impact for the community. U.S. Cellular has always been committed to the future of the communities we serve, that’s why we support the next generation of young humanitarians taking a leading approach to create a brighter future.”

To enter, nominators should visit thefutureofgood.uscellular.com and describe the nominee’s cause, how it is helping his/her community and how the nominee could use a cash grant for technology or other means to continue and grow his/her efforts. Nominees must not turn 18 before August 30, 2020.
