Bright House Networks teamed with the Afterschool Alliance for the Lights On Afterschool photo contest, which shined a spotlight on afterschool programs that work to keep kids safe, inspire learning and help working families everywhere. The contest awarded cash prizes for the photos that best depicted how programs and people are focusing on afterschool.  Throughout the month of October, participants were asked to submit photos on Facebook, and include a caption that described how they are celebrating afterschool.  Facebook visitors voted on their favorite photos from November 1 through 14.

This year, a record-breaking 9,300 Lights On Afterschool events were held around the country in October to celebrate afterschool programs and young people. Friends of afterschool, including parents and children, sent more than 600 emails and phone calls to Members of Congress and also signed a petition in support of afterschool, and now more than 10,900 individuals have signed on to urge that funding for afterschool programs should not be denied or diverted.
