Ideas might include improving news coverage (in print, digitally and other ways), helping others in our communities, ways to save people time and money or about doing business more effectively. Ideas can be submitted in two categories -- employee and non-employee – at http://ideaquest.michigan.com. The deadline for entries is midnight, March 31 and is open to anyone 18 years or older.
Once submitted, ideas will be voted on from April 1 through April 14 by the public, and the top five vote-getters in each category will have the opportunity to pitch to the judging panel on April 29, why their idea should win. The judges are:
* Patrick Doyle, CEO/Domino's Pizza
* Susie Ellwood, CEO/Detroit Media Partnership
* Myron Maslowsky, Sr. VP Group Finance & Administration/ USA TODAY
"We are committed to getting as many ideas from as many sources as possible," said Susie Ellwood, CEO, Detroit Media Partnership. "The best way for us to serve our community is to solicit feedback and understand what they want and need in this ever-changing media environment," she said.
