Nebraskans have the chance to submit ideas to www.NebraskaIdeas.com to help make the state better for the NExt Generation.
The deadline for submitting ideas to the website is December 15. So far, around 400 ideas have been submitted.
Some Nebraskans that have already submitted ideas include former Husker football players Adi Kunalic and Blake Lawrence. "As a former Husker and current Nebraska business owner, I am excited about the future of our great state," said Kunalic. "We need to find better ways to attract and retain young workers, leaders and entrepreneurs. Every Nebraskan should take a few minutes to submit their ideas for improving Nebraska."
Those interested in submitting an idea just need to sign up on the website, submit their idea, and then they have the opportunity to support other ideas and collaborate further if so desired.
Nebraskans may also submit their ideas via e-mail by first going to www.ForgingNebraska.com.
The submitted ideas will be narrowed to the "100 Best," and ultimately down to three to five "Big Ideas." These "Big Ideas" will have potential to positively transform Nebraska. The Initiative's Advisory Committee, in partnership with elected officials, state and local leaders and other partners, will then develop and execute action plans to implement these "Big Ideas."
