The Republican Project
Help the Party! Win an iPod!
The Republican Project believes many of the ideas that can help reform and rebuild the Republican Party lie with you. Simply providing a platform by which we can connect your talents, ideas, etc. for the good of the GOP is the essence of the Republican Project. Companies call this customer driven content. So, we are proud to announce our first "customer driven initiative".Â Â
In 1000 words or less, we are asking you for an essay outlining your ideas on how to strengthen, reform and rebuild the Republican Party. We will take the winning essay, post it on our web site blog and promote it to the media locally and to the national party as well. Also, if possible we would like to incorporate the idea into the essence of our organization.
