Awesome Annapolis winner for September 2017 is Melissa Fillmore from Past to Present Photos. People's Choice award went to Clare Thorbes.
Wednesday October 4th for the next pitch night. We're at the Bistro East with dinner and social from 5:30 on and pitches start at 7 pm. Everyone welcome to come see who wins $1000 and all visitors can vote for the $100 winner of the People's Choice award. Come join us but make reservations to ensure you have a seat. Everyone is most welcome but there's only seating for 50.
Awesome Annapolis is making the area more awesome $1000 at a time, no-strings-attached. We are high on action and low on bureaucracy.
We particularly like smaller, start-up projects that can demonstrate how $1000 will tip the scales to make the project happen -where the project can be achieved with the $1000 grant versus the $1000 going toward a larger funding need.
CRITICAL is the need to see awesome in our own community in Annapolis County - a good guide for reach would be using the school catchment area. Pitches for projects outside our community will not be considered so it's important that you let us know how your idea will make our community just a little bit better than it already is.
August winning pitch was National Artist in Residency competition presented by Deb Kuzyk. Congratulations on the $1000 grant.
People's Choice award of $100 was generously sponsored by trustee Byron Merserau for August. Annapolis Valley Ballooning - Terilyn and J.P. Lemaire were the winners chosen by the individuals that joined us in the audience.
The generous trustees have made the following projects possible with their $400 donation:
To become a trustee, commit to donate $400 total to participate for one year and help select the most brilliant, positive-impact project proposal to receive our combined $1000.
No audio-visual, no props, just a simple 6 minute presentation telling us about your idea and why it is awesome. Everyone is welcome – friends, family and interested community members. $1000 cash awarded on the spot! Join us for a feel-good fun evening of ideas, inspiration and entertainment.
