What did our judges have to say about the NECA program?
“The results speak for themselves. The fact that they doubled participation in one year is impressive.”
“I really like the innovative approach to adding peer level competition to offline grassroots engagement. We see this in online grassroots efforts a lot, and it was good to see it used to create offline legislator relationships.”
“The program was highly adaptable, other organizations could try this with little cost. Plus, their results were well-documented.”
