We will be awarding three grants to library-focused small projects that could help communities, demonstrate new ideas, or improve tools or services. We are looking for AWESOME ideas that just need a little funding to get started. We see this as a chance to help you do something wacky, fun, overlooked, experimental, or artistic with no strings attached..as long as you can relate it to the general concept of libraries.
Selected participants will pitch their ideas (3-5 minute slide presentation) IN PERSON to Awesome Foundation trustees, ALA conference attendees, and D.C community members. There will be three cash prizes:
1) Awesome Libraries Prize ($1000)2) Awesome D.C. Prize ($1000)3) Fan Favorite (TBD based on event crowd funding)
Submission deadline: 6/1/2019Pitch Date: 6/22/2019 5-9 pm Pitch Location: OPEN GOV HUB 1110 Vermont Ave NW Suite 500 Washington, D.C. 20005
