Community Involvement

Trip of a Lifetime

Range, in conjunction with the Foundation for Rural Service, is once again sponsoring a contest for high school juniors to win what has been referred to as a “trip of a lifetime”.

One high school junior will be selected to receive an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. to participate in the Foundation for Rural Service Youth Tour, June 1 – June 5, 2019. He/she will be joined by over 100 other high school juniors from across the United States.

To enter the contest, students must tell us in a short video why broadband is important for your rural community and how it will impact the future of America. Upload that video to Facebook, post “2019 FRS Trip of a Lifetime Youth Tour” #rangebroadband. Tag Range and make sure you use the trending topic #rangebroadband. Range will then share the post on its Facebook page and then our judges will look at each video. Videos must be uploaded by March 15, 2019.

To qualify, students, or their parents:

  1. Must receive their local phone service from Range and reside in one of the following exchanges – (In Montana — 342, 346, 347, 356, 421, 427, 436, 477, 554, 592, 757, 784, 828, 984 or in Wyoming — 283, 736, 737, 750, 758, 878)
