Cricket Wireless gives USD1,000 to 16 'Go Positive' school programs

Cricket said its “Go Positive” campaign is shedding light on the organizations that make sure kids are doing positive things at school every day, organizations that go largely unnoticed but provide a great service to our communities.

Sixteen winning schools nationwide will be awarded USD1,000 to continue their work to spread “positivity” among students.

Cricket received more than 500 nominations during the campaign from teachers, parents and community members across the country. The nominations recognized programs that support character development and leadership skills, improve literacy to provide strong foundations, teach integrity and perseverance, empower young adults and build self-esteem, and encourage positive behavior amongst students.

Cricket is bringing consumers more value with a simple, friendly, and reliable nationwide wireless experience with no annual contract. It is a subsidiary of AT&T Inc (NYSE: T).
