Since 2008, UpDayton has completeD 20+ community oriented projects, encouraging, promoting, and enabling Daytonians to transform dayton into the city we all know that it can be.  join us at summit x to celebrate 10 years of transformation, relationship building and community prosperity.    

In April, over 300 of Dayton's young professionals, volunteers, and community catalysts will gather in the Dayton Art Institute's Gothic Cloister for a fun and purposeful evening! 

Participating individuals (or teams) will each have 2-3 minutes to pitch their project idea to the Summit audience. Once all the ideas have been presented, the audience will vote to select the top 3 ideas for implementation in 2018.  If selected, projects will receive $3,000 each in seed money and the support of UpDayton to bring their ideas to action.

The event will also include opportunities for participants to connect with project team leaders and provide countless other ways to get involved in the community.
