Hao Dinh was our current volunteer Challenge Community Champion. You'll see him popping up across the Creative Confidence Challenge with handy tips and words of encouragement – and posting community updates here like a true champion!
Wow, what a wonderful journey the past 11 weeks. Thank you OpenIDEO community for 1100+ Inspirations and 600+ Ideas that led to Refining 22 awesome concepts. And kudos to the winning ideas. But the fun has just begun...
Let’s keep the momentum going by continuing to collaborate, prototype and sharing our progress with the OpenIDEO community to attract support, celebrate progress + inspire others to act. My own venture, Grow by Design seeks to help K-12 students strengthen their creative confidence and spark their innovative fire. I plan on piloting some of the awesome concepts from this challenge at Grow By Design and look forward to sharing our leanings and highlights.
It's been an amazing journey these past weeks with the OpenIDEO community. Your inspirations, comments, ideas and refinements provided mind-blowing content for my weekly Field Notes. Additionally I was delighted to see how well OpenIDEATORS collaborated, cross-pollinated and encouraged each other to innovative. The power of the community is evident in the awesome concepts generated. I'd also like to give a shout out to the OpenIDEO Team for providing me the opportunity to further develop my own creative confidence.
Keep the ideas, prototyping and action flowing.
