Would your local school like a trip to the BT Tower in London? Or a visit by a sporting ambassador such as Jonnie Peacock?

These money-can’t-buy prizes are up for grabs in a competition to promote our Community Fibre Partnerships (CFP) scheme and a special grant available to schools to help towards the cost of bringing fibre to a community. And you can help your school win.

Through CFP, we’re working with local communities to connect the last 5% of the country to fibre broadband through joint funding for infrastructure upgrades.

We’ve got a £2m pot to distribute grants of up to £20,000 to eligible schools. Communities that aren’t included in any existing fibre broadband rollout plans can apply for a grant towards the cost of new fibre infrastructure, provided it could also serve the local school.

Our competition aims to raise awareness of the grant – and encourage schools that currently get broadband speeds less than 24Mbps to apply.

Individuals enter – but it’s the school that wins. We’ll randomly pick two winning schools from all the entrants.

Bill Murphy, Managing Director of Next Generation Access at BT, said: “Your school doesn’t even have to be one that qualifies for a grant to enter. But we’re keen to attract entries from schools that are interested in a Community Fibre Partnership.”

The competition is open to anyone living in England, Scotland and Wales. The closing date for entries is January 29, 2017.
