Join us February 24th at MOHAI
5:30-6:30 VIP Reception with Judges and Idea Presenters
How can we make K-12 education more student-focused, personalized and community-rooted? Join local news outlet Crosscut.com, a panel of education experts, and others to answer that question as part of Crosscut's next Community Idea Lab in partnership with MOHAI.
The Community Idea Lab will feature five rapid fire presentations from community members selected for their innovative and scalable solutions. A panel of expert judges will critique and provide feedback on each idea, and you — the audience — will vote on the winning path forward.
Prizes include a team of civic leaders, assembled by MOHAI, to help you implement your idea over the months following the Idea Lab (Runners-up will also have a chance to work with a MOHAI-assembled team); meetings with local education leaders and policymakers; and a six month part time membership at Impact Hub Seattle.
