April is national poetry month, jazz appreciation month, child abuse prevention month, autism awareness month, financial literacy month, and more. Do you have an idea of how the Pittsburgh region could be more awesome in any of these issues? Or maybe for increasing our community’s awesomeness in an entirely different issue? Then check out our “awesome bonus points” list and submit your idea by April 15 to be considered later this month for a $1,000 award.
And, if you want more inspiration, check out some of the winning projects from other Awesome Foundation chapters around the world, including:
- The Pay Phone Revival Project in Austin
- A Poem for Us in Chicago
- A CD of Lullabies for babies in a neo-natal intensive care unit in Connecticut
- Alley-greening project designed and documented by local kids in Montreal
- Safe sex kits for homeless teens in Seattle
P.S. Don’t copy those projects, because, well, copying off of other people isn’t very awesome.
