Attendees at this event, including those individuals who are presenting, will be asked to donate $5. This money will be added to other moneys to be awarded at this event. In exchange for their $5 donation, each attend will receive a ballot to vote for the project they feel is the most deserving of funding. Ballots will be limited to one per attendee. Ballots will be collected after each applicant has had an opportunity to give their presentation.
At this event, applicants will be provided with a table to set up visual aids and hand-outs to help explain the details of their program to those in attendance. Table setup will begin at 5PM and the public will be allowed to enter the venue beginning at 5:30 PM. You will have 30 minutes to speak with those attending to spread understanding of your project.
At 6 PM, lots will be drawn to determine the order in which applicant will give their presentations. In order, each applicant will be given 5-minutes to present their project to the assembled crowd. A time keeper will help monitor the time of each presentation. Following each presentation, a panel of moderators will be given some time to ask questions submitted by those in attendance.
Once all presentations have been complete, there will be approximately 15 minutes for attendees to directly ask questions of any presenters they still have questions for and to submit their ballots. Once the ballots are in, they will be counted and winners will be announced.
Photos and information will be gathered to feature and share online. Any information shared on your application, at your table or during your presentation may be shared on the Chamber’s website, social media or by other means. This may include any financial data provided but will not include your organization’s FEIN.
