Short Description: Let’s ACTIVATE Herkimer County with creative, doable community projects. Are you working on something to make your neighborhood or community a better place? Got a bright idea for solving a local challenge or creating opportunities? Come hear inspiring ideas from around the county and pitch your own! We’ll give away $1,000 in microgrants for great project ideas! This is the final forum in the “It’s Happening in Herkimer County Challenge,” but we’ll also share info about what’s in store for 2022 — more pilot projects, chances to connect, and grow community. We’ll give away $100 in gift cards during this interactive, 60-min community event. If you like, stick around for help workshopping your community project idea from 7:30-8:00.
The Challenge is a 6-week effort to hear from as many people across the county as possible through forums, surveys, social media challenges and more. We want to hear about the great things happening in Herkimer County already, what would make people’s lives and communities better, and what bright ideas we can share and kickstart. And we’re giving away $2,500 in prizes and microgrants to sweeten the deal! Learn more, get surveys, see results, and sign up for news at itshappeninginherkimer.org.
