Acting Up Awards

Over the course of the three weeks following On the Table, The Chicago Community Trust and Goodcity Chicago received nearly 400 video submissions describing actionable ideas for projects or activities that could make a real impact on the region’s communities.


A selection committee of 30 community leaders and activists reviewed and evaluated the submissions in late June. We’re excited to announce that 64 of those ideas will receive $1,000 awards for implementation through our inaugural Acting Up initiative – addressing diverse issues such as mental health, violence, education and employment.
