Mattoon in Motion won the $250K Peoples Choice award from Google.org

Mattoon in Motion won the Google.org Impact Challenge Illinois! The grand prize of $250,000 went to the organization which received the most votes in the peoples choice award. Together as a community, we received enough votes for our project to win the peoples choice award and the grand prize! We won because of the passion and involvement of the community and could not have succeeded without all of you who support the development of Mattoon Illinois and the East Central Illinois region.

Be sure to stay up to date with what is happening in the community and the progression of our business innovation center.
