Reporting on EPIK Short-term Win Projects
On June 26, 2015, a small group of partners met together to discuss potential “short-term win" projects. (EPIK here is being used as an adjective, not a noun. EPIK = cross-sector projects that address multiple facets or "buckets" of the issue of raising children in a digital world.) Collective community impact work is long-term in nature, but shorter-term projects can help strengthen cross-sector relationships and a multi-faceted mindset. They can also build momentum for the longer-term work.
The group brainstormed eighteen different project ideas, and then prioritized and selected three short-term wins on which to focus:
1) Support for HB213 (digital citizenship education)
2) A Utah County Hackathon for children and parents
3) Building relationships and collaboration with technology companies.
