The Education Foundation of Sarasota County has announced they are partnering with DreamLarge, the philanthropic arm of local innovation agency ATLARGE, which will assume production of #SRQHacks, a free, three-day hackathon focused on engaging students in technology, entrepreneurship, design and marketing. Catalyzed three years ago by the Education Foundation of Sarasota County, #SRQHacks is designed to empower local students ages 13-18 through an intense immersion experience in which they work together with community mentors to design solutions that solve community-wide issues. Current DreamLarge initiatives include PINC: People, Ideas, Nature and Creativity; All Faiths Food Bank, allowing their mission to speak for themself with the rollout of its rebranding; and #LightsOutSRQ, helping shine a light on climate action within our community. The transition of #SRQHacks to DreamLarge will take place in 2019 when the event moves from January to the fall.
