ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Time Warner Cable is working to recognize customers who help young people explore the worlds of science, technology, engineering and math through its Connect a Million Minds initiative.
The company is searching for so-called "Super Connectors" who've made kids excited about those fields. One winner locally will get to choose a STEM-affiliated non-profit organization to receive a $5,000 grant and they will also get to star in a public service announcement for their organization. They'll also get to compete for two nationwide grants.
"We have lots of Time Warner Cable customers that are volunteers around the Central New York area in things from environmental science with all of our lakes and waterways to nature in the city, getting kids engaged in their own backyards, to robotics, to food science and health science, it can be a variety of different things that adults get kids fired up about," said Stephanie Salanger, Time Warner Cable Regional Communication Manager.
The deadline to enter is October 16.
Time Warner Cable is the parent company of YNN and we are committed to the Connect a Million Minds program, inspiring youth to develop science, technology, engineering and math skills. For more information on the initiative, go to connectamillionminds.com.
