We are excited to announce another Wow! Innovation Challenge — Outreach Event Success. After you host an outreach event, it’s important to figure out how successful it was, so you can build on your successes. This challenge is designed to help improve the process for future outreach events. Visit here to participate in the FY17 Wow! Innovation Challenge #3. Submissions must be received by 11:59 PM Central Time on Friday, April 14, 2017.
Outreach event "success" can mean a number of things — whether that’s the number of attendees, results from post-event surveys, trends from an event year-to-year, or any other piece of the event. What does your section look at to determine if an outreach event was successful? Are there ways you use that information to improve future events?
How to Apply
Through the form on the Wow! Innovation Challenge page, you will be asked to submit a video, PowerPoint, or Snapguide with your creative approach to the challenge topic. Supporting media (e.g. post-event survey samples) are recommended, but not required. If your submission is a video, please submit it as a YouTube link. Visit here for more information about the WOW! Innovation Challenge.
