White Oak Bayou wins Rice University 2016 Civic Innovation Incubator Award This March, the White Oak Bayou Association participated in the Rice University Civic Innovation Incubator workshop as a Community Partner. The one-day workshop pairs undergraduate students with local nonprofit organizations to help brainstorm solutions to the organizations’ institutional and outreach-based challenges. WOBA submitted a proposal outlining our efforts and goals for broadening our membership base and increasing community engagement for restoration of the Bayou. After meeting briefly with representatives from the WOBA Board, a three-person undergraduate student team brainstormed and presented their ideas to address this challenge. Their presentation was well thought-out and included innovative ideas such as interactive website improvements, social media campaigns, and signage around the bayou. The students were judged by community volunteers on their solutions and presentations as part of the workshop. We are thrilled to announce that the White Oak Bayou student group took home third place out of ten teams! Much to our benefit, the prize includes a summer internship for one of the students to implement their ideas, which will be fully-funded by Rice University. WOBA is currently working with Rice to organize and select an intern to focus on increasing our local presence and community engagement for the summer 2016.
