Loveland is about to get Awesome! WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY "AWESOME?"
Every chapter interprets "awesome" for itself. As such, awesome projects include initiatives in a wide range of areas including arts, technology, community development, and more. Many awesome projects are novel or experimental, and evoke surprise and delight. Awesome sometimes challenges and often inspires. Put a smile on people's faces with your project, or make them stop and think. Really, we just want to see how awesome you can be with your idea and a $1,000.
Submissions will be due by June 30th. The board of trustees will then review and vote for the top 6 finalists. All submissions will be made aware of their standing by July 7th.
The finalists agree to attend the Awesome Foundation Loveland Chapter's Pitch Night to present for a chance to win the $1000 prize. The first Pitch Night will occur on July 20th! The Pitch Night will be a fun event filled discussion on why are community is awesome and how you intend to make it even more awesome!
Finalists funding request pitches must be within 6 minutes each. Allotting for 3 minutes to pitch the idea and 3 minutes for questions. Submissions that lose can re-submit.
