To support the growth and success of students and young professionals in the State of Indiana who wish to collaborate, critique, and develop the state as a hub for education, business, and entrepreneurship. A.K.A helping stop the creative brain drain of Indiana.
IndianaUploaded is a community for Indiana high school students, college students, and industry professionals connecting with one another to keep Indiana creativity learning and working in Indiana. We are working together to prevent creative brain drain. We are making the dreams of young Indiana creative professionals into real Indiana stories.
Description or Goals:
Our goals are big! We want to provide continual opportunities for scholarship, internship, and mentorship through our community! We would like to award $25,000 or more a year to students in Indiana Colleges. We would also like to give to special interest groups in the state that support networking between industry and young professionals.
We have over 400 members, and are growing each contest! Members are mostly Indiana college students, in the near future, we will be marketing to all high school and college faculty across Indiana to get their students involved!
Short Term we hope to market widely to college and high school faculty all over Indiana. With more faculty support at each college, IndianaUploaded can garner more support to create a larger network, better contests, and our ideal online community at IndianaUploaded.com.
We strive to continue to help young creatives realize there is so much opportunity in-state. We want those students going to Indiana colleges and then finding creative and rewarding positions at home in Indiana. We would love to award many scholarships yearly and to partner with industry state wide to find young professionals within our membership.
With your help, we will be giving larger scholarship contests, more monetary prized contests, and marketing throughout Indiana. We are also excited to support very specific interest meet-up groups in Indiana such as AIGA, IGDA, MG Collective and VERGE. These Indiana-centric meetups host great monthly events for IndianaUploaded members to network.
We need volunteers! Period. Student Ambassadors and Faculty support on each campus/high school would go so far! After that, we will need partners in developing and realizing our 2.0 community at IndianaUploaded.com !
