The 'Inventor's Challenge' is a 501c3. As a not for profit we can expand this brand and its challenges into other STEAM related fields and broaden our single challenge into diverse challenges to reach more raw talent.  Being a not for profit also allows us the ability to raise the significant funds that will be needed to follow this vision to its greatest potential. 
Focus areas:
a. Neighborhood Community Challenges with goals and rewards.  An example might be for each city council member to organize a group of representatives from their home district to come up with a cheer, dance, or display of community spirit. These groups will march in the Parade of Inventor's and be rewarded for their efforts with a neighborhood grant.  City council members will be our partners in execution.
 b. Local Business Challenges with goals and rewards.  An example might be ‘The Fairy Doors of Troy’. Each local business within the festival grounds will be asked to create a fairy door with their business being the inspiration. Festival goers will be asked to visit these shops to view the doors and vote for their favorite.  A 'People's Choice' would be awarded.  Along with a prize – winners can be guaranteed inclusion in a 1,000-print run “Special Edition” 5-Year Anniversary poster for the Enchanted City.  The BID (Business Improvement District) will be our partner in execution.
c.  Organization Challenges with goals and rewards.  An example might be for each organization (i.e. schools, non- for profits, corporations) might be that they are challenged to execute a mobile creation that reflects their interpretation of the Fairy Tale of Troy.  These groups will march in the Parade of Inventor's and be rewarded for their efforts with the title of 'The 2018 Trojan Spirit of Innovation Award'.  Troy Innovation Garage will be our partner in execution.
