Charter Communications, which serves the Greater New Milford area, will hold a back to school laptop contest and award 50 laptops to two winning schools on Sept. 27.

The winners will be posted on the company's website.

Contest nominations are open to anyone 18 years of age or older and can be made online by submitting a story telling why a favorite school should win.

Nominations will close on Thursday, Aug. 12 when a panel of judges will narrow the entries down to the 50 best nominations.

The public will be able to vote online from Aug. 16 to Sept. 20. The two highest vote-getters will win 50 laptops for their schools.
