We have began work on our annual publication, Collaborating for Success. This 20-24 page full color directory of seasonal activities informs community members and visitors to our area about upcoming 2020 summer events. Half or full page ads are available for local businesses and organizations that host summer events which often includes camps, private instruction schools, or organizations with specific summer programming. Local businesses without summer events are also invited to purchase a half page or sponsorship ad to list hours of business or offer a coupon to recipients of the publication. Sponsorship ads are business card size ads (3.5″ x 2″) and are for those who do not have events but want their name associated with Collaborating for Success.
Collaborating for Success has a broad audience. Local families look forward to receiving Collaborating for Success as they plan their summer activities, and it is also a resource for visitors to the community. Over 4,000 copies are sent out to area students in Mid March – early April, to the Bemidji, Cass Lake, Red Lake, Walker and Park Rapids school districts as well as area charter and private schools. Additional copies are delivered to area visitor centers and other public entities.
We are so proud to offer this colorful, high quality publication to the community as well as to allocate profits from the publication towards improving our art space to include a storage area, shelving, LED lighting, and a wheelchair accessible entrance (a goal that is very close to my heart).
The fee for Collaborating for Success ads include layout and editing assistance and publication delivery to school districts and other centers and hotels. There is limited space and contributors are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Those who are interested in purchasing space in the publication will need to confirm their commitment by January 20th. The publication will be completed by March 15th.
