Do You Have an Idea to Make the Daniel Island Community Even Better?

May 9, 2012

Here’s your chance to make it happen. The Rotary Club of Daniel Island, along with the Daniel Island Community Fund and The Daniel Island News, are sponsoring a community improvement contest. Residents are invited to propose a project that would improve the quality of life on Daniel Island, producing a specific result that can be enjoyed by residents of Daniel Island. The person or group who proposes the winning project will be expected to execute the project to completion by December 31, 2012. The sponsors of the contest will provide up to $1000 to cover out-of-pocket expenses for each of two project categories:

A project that benefits the Daniel Island community at large
A project that benefits the children on Daniel Island

Daniel Island residents, families and organizations are eligible to apply. Only requests that strictly abide by the guidelines will be approved for submission. Requests that are deemed political, religious or aimed towards for-profit business purposes will not be considered.

If you would like to submit a proposal for consideration you must:

1. Have your idea meet the required criteria;
2. Be prepared to execute the project and recruit members or groups, as necessary, to make it happen;
3. Prepare a cost budget, not to exceed $1000 (sponsors will not provide overruns);
4. Complete a project application, which can be found at thedanielislandnews.com, dicommunity.org, danielislandrotary.com

Applications should be submitted to Sue Detar via email at sdetar@thedanielislandnews.com or in person at The Daniel Island News office (225 Seven Farms Drive, Unit 108) by Friday, May 18.

One winner for each category will be chosen and announced at the Rotary Duck Race on Daniel Island Saturday, June 2.
