What is the 24 Hour Citizen Project?

The 24 Hour Citizen Project is an event where we connect people with community-focused ideas with expertise and financial backers to make them happen. This is an event created for citizens to impact their community directly through the pursuit of citizen-led projects. Be prepared to experience the ups and downs of pursuing your idea, the pressure of getting it done in 24 hours, and the encouragement given to you by your fellow citizens cheering you on!

Citizen Teams

If given the funding and resources, what could you do to better your community? At the 24 Hour Citizen Project, we’ll connect your vision with the expertise and backers to make it happen.

Attend

That’s right. Attending is participating too! Come sit back, have some fun, and join the party. Be prepared to show your support to the Citizen Teams through lots of cheering, yelling, hugs, and high fives. We treat the event as a celebration of community.
You should too!

Experts

Every idea needs advice and guidance. Whether it be an attorney, a designer on aesthetics, a local government official, a handyman, or just someone to give you critical feedback. You can be a resource to the citizens who may (or may not) need you.

Backers

Backers are like investors, but are contributing to their community instead of a business. Backers will judge the citizen’s ideas during the final pitch event at Hour 24. And yes, contributions to projects will be tax deductible unless otherwise noted.
