Help SCI win A Community Thrives grant with your vote

We have gotten into the ACT and now we need your help take it to the stage.

ACT, an acronym for A Community Thrives, is a new Gannett Co. initiative, encouraging involvement in social impact programs and is seeking ideas from the public on creative solutions to solve critical needs in their communities.

The Studer Community Institute pitched an idea in the national contest that is awarding up to $100,000 to help improve the community and to make this a better place to live. Click here to vote.

Voting closes May 12. After a judging period, winners will be announced on or after May 28.

News organizations in the company’s USA TODAY NETWORK, including the Pensacola News Journal, went all in this year in the project to raise awareness and improve communities through philanthropic missions.

One $100,000 prize will be awarded nationwide in each of the three categories; two $50,000 awards will also be awarded in each category.

SCI is looking for people committed to improving our community to show up in big numbers to vote on the local project to help build support for America’s First Early Learning City and bring home one of the top prizes.

SCI nominated a great idea to improve lives in this community and plans to use the $100,000 to turn into something significant and lasting – something that makes a real difference in our community.

In this case, your vote really counts. So, don’t forget to vote — over and over again — to help make Pensacola America’s First Early Learning City.
