#ygkChallenge: Do Something Awesome

Awesome KingstonWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better awesome-r place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Submit a pitch to Awesome Kingston. There is a new group in town that has $1000 to give to an individual or group that has a great idea to improve Kingston. That’s where you come in. Pull out those ideas that you have had to put a smile on the faces of strangers. Grab some friends and dream up some ideas together to improve an area of Kingston and submit as a group. Awesome Kingston wants all of your ideas, small or large, complicated or simple, practical or a flight of fancy. Applications for February are due at midnight on 2 Feb, while you will find all the application details: here. How would you improve Kingston given a chance and $1000?

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge. As you work towards completing this week’s task, please feel free to lend others a helping hand by providing tips on how you achieved success.
