Charter Gives Away Free Laptops To Schools!
Does your school need computers but your school doesnâ€™t have enough money to buy them? Well, right know Charter is giving away 50 laptops to two schools! The laptops are Lenovo G555’s with a 15.6″ screen, 160GB drive and 3GB ram (with a Targus bag).
Ordering any Charter service automatically gives you a chance to win and get up to $300 cash back. You can also register online with no purchase necessary.
But the real opportunity is for all of us as parents and others to nominate our local schools and encourage friends and relatives to vote for our schools so they can win the 50 laptops.
Schools need to be nominated by Aug. 12. There is a short nomination process at http://www.charter.com/laptop and only residential customers within the areas that Charter serves are able to nominate a school. I tried, but my zip code was not qualified. It’s still worth the effort to see if you can nominate the school of your choice though. Some schools are in desperate need of computer upgrades, so this is a great opportunity for them especially.
Charter will choose 50 finalists (based on the nomination stories submitted) and announce them on August 16th.
Open voting occurs between Aug. 16 and Sept. 20 and Charter will announce the two winning schools on Sept. 27th.
You can also enter to win a laptop for yourself. (I did!)
Isnâ€™t it cool that huge companies are giving back to communities? I think it is! In the past Charter has offered some great prizes including: a hybrid car, a Camaro, an HDTV-A-Day for an entire month, free laptops, XBox 360’s and more!
So be sure to enter for yourself in the laptop-a-day giveaway and try to nominate your favorite school.
