We need your vote to get Better Broadband to more Illinoisans

Broadband Illinois is competing in the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest and a $25,000 grand prize is up for grabs.

If selected, we'll use the funding to develop a variety of printed marketing materials that will be distributed to Illinois citizens who haven't yet connected to high-speed internet. 

The materials will help inform seniors, business owners, public servants, rural residents, and others of the availability of broadband in their area, provide information on nearby digital literacy trainings, and tell real-world success stories of how broadband has made life better for those who use it. 

Your vote will help get us in the Top 100 and a grant committee will then choose the winners. Five businesses will receive a $5,000 grant and the grand-prize winner will receive $25,000. 

Users may vote once per day until Saturday, November 24, 2012. A Facebook account is needed to vote.
