Judging Criteria & Grant Recipients

“Temporary local projects and events that motivate Calgarians to

walk, play and be neighbourly.”

Judging Criteria

A committee will be formed made up of representatives from Walk 21, The City of Calgary, community focused organizations, external funders and citizens. Grants will be sorted for judging, and judges will be asked for their top picks across the city. In reviewing applications, they will be assessing your application based on the following:

Novelty

  • How unique is your idea?
  • Is it new to your group?

Replicability

  • Can others implement your project if they heard about your success?

Impact

  • How many people will be involved? (volunteers)
  • How many people will likely walk, play and be neighbourly?
  • How will you leverage other funds? Gifts in kind? Etc.

Fit

  • Does this fit with the ActivateYYC theme of walking, playing and being neighbourly?
