Potential voters can visit their local U.S. Cellular store beginning September 14 to pick up their voting code to vote for their favorite school.

Elenz, executive vice president of sales and customer service for U.S. Cellular. "We are active members of our customers' communities and we believe this campaign is a great way to engage entire communities to work towards a common goal."
