Story

Our employer is the Unified Government. They are a local government located in Wyandotte County and are responsible for the majority of things that happen in Wyandotte County. They provide many services and bring a lot of value to the community. They are the decision makers for the county and provide services like transportation, and programs such as PAL.

The Problem

The problem we are solving is that people from Wyandotte County are leaving the county and going to other cities or states. This brings the question, "How might we retain youth to live, work, and raise a family in Wyandotte county?"

The Solution

Our solution is to build an amusement park in Wyandotte County that will give access to many youth and families to a place of entertainment. This helps solve the leaving of residents from Wyandotte County because we are specifically targeting youth to come to amusement parks and have fun. It also provides jobs and will give families an opportunity to do something fun in Wyandotte County.

Target Market

The main people affected by the problem are youth who will eventually leave Wyandotte County in the future due to lack of entertainment and other reasons. The population of Wyandotte county in the next 10 to 20 years will mainly consist of the current Wyandotte County youth.

Societal Impact

Our solution not only brings entertainment but it also has an economic impact due to jobs being created.

Next Steps

We will need the requested amount of money. That will allow us to begin the construction of the amusement park. It will be completed in 1-2 years.

Reflection

Working with the Unified Government has opened up so many doors for us. It allowed us to learn about our own county and the needs and wants of the community. It showed us different aspects of topics like homelessness. It made not only our soft skills but adaptive skills a lot better. Working with people we are not familiar with and having to take the leadership role during certain times.

Use of Backer Contributions

We are not currently accepting contributions from our voters. This pitch is part of the ProX competition for $5,000. If possible, we would like to make the amusement park a reality but keeping in mind that implementing a multi-million dollar project will be difficult. We would make sure we keep our promise and make sure that, with the funding we get, we would only use that money to make the community a better place. Giving back to the community would be the best thing to do with the funding we would get.
