DISH Cosponsors America’s Best Communities Prize

Does your city or town have what it takes to become one of America’s Best Communities? The answer could mean $3 million in cash to spur economic development. America's Best Communities Prize DISH has teamed up with Frontier Communications to revitalize small towns and rural areas across the country by cosponsoring the America’s Best Communities Prize. The competition gives small cities and towns an opportunity to showcase their entrepreneurial potential, and finalists will receive cash prizes to help kick-start their local economy.
