It isn’t every day that there comes along an opportunity like this one: little Indiana is trying to win a $2000 grant from MomCentral.
So far I’m in the Top 25 but that’s not enough–I could really use your (daily) vote! This contest runs through April 15, 2011.
Help little Indiana Win a Grant
This is only the first round: public voting. After that, the top three sites in their categories (based on rankings) will move on and be judged by a panel. If I can just get past the public voting I think I’ve got a shot at it!
What would this grant do for little Indiana? Well, as you may realize, running little Indiana isn’t cheap. Between rising gas prices, food, gear, and everything else, there’s not much leftover. I’ve had a few big ideas for the site. Would a snappier-looking, easy to use Indiana small town festivals and events calendar be great or what?
I’d also love a mapping function where you could easily see where I’ve been, where exactly a town is located, and simply click on the Indiana town name to go directly to that page. Leftover funding would be used for a billboard–with me paying out the remainder.
What is little Indiana
I think of little Indiana as the first stop someone may make when moving to a new small town, to see what there is to do in the area, or to create a weekend getaway while supporting local mom and pop businesses like yours.
Changes in site design (and just advertising) will definitely make things easier but won’t happen without a little extra help! Help me, help you by voting for little Indiana. And, no, you don’t have to be in Indiana to vote!
Simply click on this link every day (link removed/contest ended). You’ll be taken over to the Facebook Page for little Indiana’s contest entry. Scroll down until you see the green “Vote Now” button. Click it and that’s it! You’re done! Thank you for making little Indiana the friendly, warm community that it is.
