Xpress is working on its second special issue aimed at showcasing people who are helping make our community a better place to live. Last year’s theme was Asheville’s influentials; this year we are highlighting innovation.
We want to hear about people working on the cutting edge, thinking outside the box and implementing unorthodox methods to great effect. It might be an innovative program for transitioning people experiencing homelessness into stable environments or pioneering technology like an app connecting needs with available resources.
Innovation can take many forms and Xpress wants to hear about those who are creating and utilizing new ideas to shape our community. Our panel of judges will make the final decision and then feature the winners in a special issue focusing on Asheville’s innovators for 2017.
Nominating a candidate is easy. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. Name of the person.
2. Name of their organization.
3. The person’s role, e.g., whether they volunteer, work for or are the founder of the organization, business, etc.
4. Nominee’s contact information.
5. A statement about how the person is using innovation in the Asheville area.
Please send nominations by Friday, Sept. 15.
