HOW TO PRESENT TO THE JUDGES
Sullivan Renaissance seminar to help projects prepare
April 24, 2007
[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance is holding a seminar on “How to Present Your Project to the Judges” on Wednesday, May 2, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. in the CVI Building in Liberty. The seminar focuses on how Renaissance community projects can best prepare for the judging that will take place on August 10, 11 and 12.
Groups meet with the panel of judges on Friday, August 10 to explain their efforts; the judges visit each community on Saturday or Sunday morning to see the work accomplished. Seminar participants will also review the guidelines and criteria for judging, discuss best practices from previous years, and receive presentation tips.
The teams of judges from outside Sullivan County select winners in three project categories. All participants that finish will receive completion grants. Winners will be announced during an awards ceremony on Monday, August 13 at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
Communities have been hard at work on 46 community projects since initial grants were awarded in March. Projects are judged for aesthetic improvement, collaboration, youth involvement, permanence and an ability to be maintained.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Beaverkill Foundation and the Gerry Foundation. Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.
Pre-registration is requested. For information call 845-295-2445 or visit the website at www.sullivanrenaissance.org.
