A Pitch Competition Example
MICE ON MAIN
Greenville, South Carolina: For his senior project at Christ Church Episcopal School in 2000, Jim Ryan proposed the idea of installing a family of nine unique mice sculptures in surprising places along Greenville's Main Street from the Hyatt to the Westin Poinsett Hotel. His original idea spun from the book, Goodnight Moon, which he and his mom read every night when he was small. There are nine mice pictured in that story. Ryan made his way through the red tape involved in any city project and then raised the money, with the assistance of donors and the mayor, to complete his project. The mice have become a popular attraction downtown, with many people engaging in scavenger hunts, or bringing out-of-town guests to try and find them all.
