The Race Continues For The Top Spot In U.S. Cellular's Calling All Communities Campaign

CHICAGO, Sept. 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As U.S. Cellular's (NYSE:USM) Calling All Communities campaign continues, the carrier revealed the Top 100 schools leading the pack and what those new votes mean for participating schools. To date 15,728 total votes have been cast so far with nearly 13,500 just this week in the race to win a share of $1 million in the company's fourth annual campaign to support education.

The top 18 schools that receive the most votes will win a share of $1 million to spend any way they see fit. The school that garners the most votes will receive $150,000, and the next 17 schools will each receive $50,000. The voting period ends Oct. 21.

As of Sept. 25, the Top 100 schools lead a total of 646 schools throughout the country that have received votes. With three new schools in the Top 20 and 32 new schools in the Top 100 this week, many continue to gain momentum. There has been drastic movement from Columbus Unified High School from Columbus, Kan., who went from 99th place to 31st in just one week. Hugo Middle School from Hugo, Okla., made an impressive jump from 53rd place to 25th this week.
