The Specifics

GOOD Maker wants to know how you will creatively engage others in the civic life of your community by promoting idea-sharing, collaboration and participation. Maybe you’ll revive a forgotten city tradition? Advocate for prettier public spaces? Organize a voter registration drive? Host a town hall meeting on local arts funding? We’re supporting this month’s 30-Day Challenge on civic involvement by offering a $500 grant to fund the best idea. Whether you’re a hometown hero or the new kid on the block, we believe you have what it takes to stir your fellow citizens to action.

I do not necessarily like that your contests are decided by number of votes. I think that it takes making a difference and turns it into a popularity contest opposed to a contest that is based on merit. The average person will vote for their friend over a stranger. I think that you should have it be a mix of outside judges and/or a voting system

In today's world,the word freedom is an oxymoron,What it really means is Free-Dumb. Laws that take away our real freedom,which millions of soldiers have died for and small business have suffered because of.
