NorthWestern Energy seeking nominations to give teachers a Bright Surprise

Sep 14, 2020

Butte, Mont. – Sept. 14, 2020 – Schools are on the frontline with our critical resource, our communities’ students. This year educators are not only preparing the next generation for careers and future success, but are working in new ways to keep everyone safe and healthy during this pandemic.

NorthWestern Energy is asking for help to offer a bit of bright cheer to outstanding schools. NorthWestern Energy customers can nominate schools’ staff members to receive their favorite treat from a local business. Tell us why you think this school could use a Bright Surprise and what local business – such as a coffee shop, bakery or restaurant – would be just the place to supply the treat.

NorthWestern Energy will deliver a Bright Surprise to selected schools, along with safety messages and energy career information for students.

“2020 is a year of challenges for all of us and this is a chance for NorthWestern Energy to say thank you and bring a smile to some of the dedicated educators in our communities,” said NorthWestern Energy Director of Community Connections Rick Edwards. “We want your help to let our schools’ staff know they are appreciated.”

Nominate a school you would like to receive a Bright Surprise at Nominations will be accepted until Nov. 25 but don’t wait. Delivery of Bright Surprises begins Oct. 1.
