Five recipients of the Big Little Idea Contest were announced and recognized at last night’s city council meeting. Winners of the Big Little Idea contest each received $500 to implement their ideas by Dec. 16, 2017.
Winners were selected based on the criteria for originality, connection to the community and creativity. The six winners were chosen by a judging panel consisting of two city council members, a Brighton Youth Commission member and appointed staff.
The Big Little Idea winners and their ideas include:
- Shari Brodersen, Friends of Barr Lake hosted Field Trips to Bromley Koizuma-Hishinuma Farm on the Big Little Idea Farm Bus
- Veronica Navarro, For the Love of Reading – Northeast Elementary
- Cora Lou Gupton, Butterfly Garden – Northeast Elementary
- Catherine Odson, Anythink Library Bike Safety Rodeo and Helmet Giveaway
- Beth Sanchez, Blessing Boxes
Due the logistics required to implement the sixth Big Little Idea, approval is pending and the idea may come to City Council at a later date.
The Big Little Idea contest is a city-sponsored contest that awards $500 each to six citizens, nonprofits or teams that reside in Brighton city limits to create and implement ideas to make Brighton a better place to live, work, play and learn.
The City of Brighton would like to thank everyone in the community who submitted an idea. For more information on the Big Little Idea contest, contact the city’s Public Information and Community Resources Department at 303-655-2146 or visit www.brightonco.gov/biglittleidea.
