Phoenixville entered into Ikea's "Small Businesses, Big Dreams" contest

Local public relations firm Ten-Sixteen, Inc. has submitted a video on behalf of Phoenixville into the Ikea "Small Businesses, Big Dreams" sweepstakes. The idea behind the contest is for small towns like Phoenixville to create a three minute video which highlights everything the town has to offer.

From the Ten-Sixteen website

Booming businesses start with dreams and thriving towns begin with dreamers. We have a vision for our business and are working to make a big difference in our town. IKEA wanted to hear from us and other entrepreneurs in our community. We submited a video to enter the Small Businesses, Big Dreams Contest: Furnished by IKEA. IKEA wants to create awareness for unique and growing small towns around the country, and to support the winning entry with a "main street makeover". For the winning town and their community, IKEA designers and furnishings will be put to work to help transform the physical space of up to 10 small businesses with BIG dreams in your neighborhood!

Ten Sixteen, Inc. entered the contest on behalf of Phoenixville, PA. We were at First Friday and BlobFest filming on the street to highlight Phoenixville and the revitalization going on in town.

Phoenixville is one of 50 communities that submitted a video. To see it, click here.

The next step is for Ikea to narrow down the choices to 10. This is supposed to be done by August 2nd. On August 3rd, the finalists will be announced and, at that point, the public can vote on the one they like the best.

If Phoenixville makes the cut I will be sure to post a link so that everyone can vote.
