Aptly titled <a href="http://bigideacincinnati.com/"><strong>The Big Idea Challenge</strong></a>, anyone can go online and share their community-changing idea in one of seven categories. As <strong>Beth Benson</strong>, the vice-president of communications and marketing for GCF explains to Mark Perzel, there are not only cash prizes for winning submissions, but the top idea in each category (selected by a community vote) will receive $5000 and technical support to kick-start the idea, and the overall top idea will receive $50,000 from the GCF board members to bring that idea to fruition.</p><p> Fri, 17 May 2013 05:30:20 +0000 Mark Perzel 12609 at http://wmub.org The Big Idea Challenge
