Ignite Columbus is seeking passionate and civic-minded individuals to present their most innovative ideas or projects at our event. Presenters will share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total of just five minutes.

Speakers will compete in one of two categories:
“Best Community Project” Competitors will pitch their ideas to the panel of judges for $2,000 in funding. The project must benefit Columbus in some way so think public art, active transportation or equality education but remember, creativity is key!
“Most Enlightening Presentation” Competitors will teach the audience something. This category isn’t tied to a project – it’s just supposed to be fun, educational or entertaining. Winner gets $250 cash.

Stay in the loop! Like Ignite Columbus on Facebook
Email questions or project concepts to ingnitecolumbusin@gmail.com. (Don’t worry, we won’t share your ideas!)
