2024 Community Champions Contest

ACA Connects Members are an important part of their communities. In addition to delivering reliable and affordable video and broadband services, they often lead initiatives that provide a helping hand to their neighbors and friends.

Community Champions

ACA Connects is excited to announce that entries are now being accepted for the 2024 Community Champion contest! This annual initiative encourages ACA Connects Operator Members to submit a community service project showing how their company supports and uplifts the neighborhoods and customers they serve.

Online entries will be accepted from April 3 through August 15 at 5 p.m. Eastern. Entries must include a 150- to 250-word description of the project and one photograph. Only one entry per Member company is allowed, and the contest is only open to ACA Connects Operator Members (Companies are eligible to win every 4 years).

Voting will occur from September 30 through October 30 on the ACA Connects website. The winner will be announced in early November, presented with a $2,500 check to continue their efforts with the project, and spotlighted in the December ICN.

This is a great way to promote all of the unique and innovative ways that our Members support their communities! Project submissions will be highlighted in the next two issues of ICN.

Summit 2024 attendees may have seen images of 2023 submissions in the opening video, and details on all the projects are included in information we provide to Members of Congress during our meetings on Capitol Hill.

At ACA Connects, we are proud to represent such a wonderful group of companies who see the value of investing in their communities and lifting up their neighbors. We’re excited to see the innovative and unique projects our Members have developed in an effort to give back!

Armstrong

A Walk For Hunger

The Armstrong Breaking Bread initiative orchestrates the Walk for Hunger event annually, led by a high school senior from Seneca Valley High School as part of their senior project, in collaboration with our Community Marketing Manager. This walk aims to generate funds for community feeding programs. In the previous year, this single-day event amassed more than $8,000 in donations. The upcoming event, scheduled for September 10th, has set an ambitious fundraising target of $10,000. Over the span of five years, A Walk for Hunger has surpassed $25,000 in contributions, as per records from the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank, benefiting families, children, and seniors within the communities we serve by providing over 75,000 meals.
