Foundation Announces Great Idea Competition

Do you or your organization have a Great Idea that would better the quality of life in the Stillwater Area? If so, the Stillwater Area Foundation wants to hear about it!

The Stillwater Area Foundation is pleased to announce our Great Idea Competition. Stillwater is going through transition: a new bridge, the visioning of a new community festival…now is the time to envision what we can be. Our community can benefit from your ideas. The Great Idea Competition seeks to identify, support and proudly promote the Stillwater Area’s newest and most innovative idea that will benefit our community for the long term.

The Great Idea Competition encourages and hopes to receive a wide range of ideas through this contest. The winning idea will receive a $5,000 grant to implement their Great Idea.

The Great Idea Competition is a fun and engaging way for the Stillwater Area to learn about critical issues affecting our community, develop creative new solutions for addressing those issues and be inspired to act. All those interested are encouraged to submit their idea no later than April 1, 2013 by going to the Stillwater Area Foundation website at

The top three entrants will be asked to present at a May board meeting and the winner will be announced in June. The winning idea will receive the grant money, the Great Idea Cup and the potential to receive more in designated funds. The two runners-up may also be eligible for designated funds.

Ideas should be submitted to the Stillwater Area Foundation at 1809 Northwestern Avenue, Stillwater, MN 55082. #
