Phase 2 of the Business Unusual National Challenge has begun, and public voting is open from now through Friday, May 31.


After gathering adaptive challenge submissions from arts and culture organizations around the country over the past two months through our Business Unusual National Challenge, we are excited to announce an exceptional group of 14 Semi-Finalist organizations. However, only 5 Finalists will make it on to the crowdsourcing round in June.
