Join Us for a Conversation about Innovation in Local Government!
The Humphrey School of Public Affairs and InCommons are pleased to announce Dakota County Community Services, Irondale High School of Mounds View Public Schools, and the City of St Paul’s EMS Academy as finalists in the sixth annual Local Government Innovation Awards. A public vote will determine which one of these finalists will receive a $25,000 grant to continue innovating.
You are invited to join us in helping select the grant recipient by attending one of the following community conversations to learn and share about local government innovation happening in your community. These events are also an opportunity to talk with elected officials and to connect with others interested in supporting and improving the work that our schools, cities, and counties do every day. Everyone who attends a community conversation in December will have a chance to vote for which of the three finalists should receive the $25,000 grant. Please join us for one of the following conversations:
- December 11 with the Humphrey School: 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at the Humphrey School for Public Affairs in Minneapolis. RSVP by December 9 http://conta.cc/V3p0R1
