March, 2013: The Anthony Wayne High School Baseball Team has been selected as April’s Give Back Program award recipient. They plan to use the award to purchase commemorative jerseys for a special benefit game for Jake Conklin, a former student undergoing treatment for Hodgkins lymphoma.
The program offers organizations within Elementary, Junior High, and High Schools (Kindergarten through 12th grade) in the Buckeye CableSystem Toledo service area a chance to win a monthly cash award donated by Fifth Third Bank. The award will help with a worthwhile improvement for the school, school organization, or school sports team. It can include new uniforms, field trips, musical equipment, computers, etc.
Schools, school organizations, school sports teams, or school representative (including students) can nominate themselves by writing an essay (200 words or less) on why their school, organization, or team deserves the monthly cash award. Nomination forms can be obtained through BCSN’s website (BCSN.tv) or any Buckeye CableSystem location.
Completed nomination forms will be accepted by mail or dropped at Buckeye CableSystem through May 7, 2013. If a school, school organization, or school team is not chosen as the monthly winner, schools may re-apply in the subsequent months.
Each month through June, five nominees will be chosen as finalists at BCSN’s discretion. The five finalists will be placed in a voting poll on BCSN’s website (BCSN.tv). Viewers will vote on the finalists, and the finalist earning the most votes will be named the month’s winner. The monthly winner will receive a one-time $500 cash award donated by Fifth Third Bank.
The award will be given to the school that submitted the original nomination form. The winner will be announced through a promotional commercial produced by Buckeye CableSystem that will air in the month the winner is chosen.
Program rules can be adjusted at anytime at the discretion of Buckeye CableSystem.
