Awesome Piqua wants to help the community generate some more awesomeness! The local chapter of the international organization invites everyone to join them for an “Awesome Piqua Incubator & Coffee Hour” on Wednesday, November 16 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the lobby of the Piqua Public Library, 116 W. High Street in downtown Piqua.
Awesome Piqua (www.AwesomePiqua.org) is focused on funding new projects which will make the Piqua community a better place in which to live and work. This informal “incubator” meeting is a chance for awesome folks to come together to share ideas and learn more about Awesome Piqua! The meeting will hopefully match “idea” people with “doers” who can create a successful application to the organization.
Generally, an Awesome project should make Piqua citizens feel better about our community, be a new activity or event which benefits the community as a whole, or a section of the community. Awesome projects include creative initiatives in a wide range of areas including recreation, arts, technology, community development, and more. Many awesome projects are novel or experimental, and evoke surprise and delight.
Applications can be made by visiting the Awesome Piqua website at www.awesomepiqua.org and clicking on the “Apply Here” link at the top of the page. Generally, every month the Awesome Piqua trustees will review the grant applications received, discuss the awesomeness of each new idea and choose the winning idea to receive the $1,000 grant, no-strings-attached.
The November 16 meeting is open to anybody who is interested in learning more about the Awesome Piqua group, or who would like to bounce their ideas off the trustees. We’ll connect, brainstorm and inspire even more AWESOME for Piqua!
