Big Little Idea contest seeking unique ideas

Big Little Idea

Today, the City of Brighton opened its fourth annual Big Little Idea contest to Brighton community members.

The Big Little Idea contest is a city-sponsored contest that will award $750 each to four citizens, nonprofits or teams, to create and implement ideas to make Brighton a better place to live, work, play and learn. Brighton residents are encouraged to show their love for Brighton through their ideas. In past years, the contest generated a variety of impressive ideas and action from the community including painted traffic signal boxes, field trips to Barr Lake, a little library, a downtown mural and a greenhouse.

Big Little Idea contest timeline:

 February 1 – Contest opens to the public

  • April 1 – Submission deadline
  • April 9 – Judging week
  • May 1 – Winners will be recognized at City Council meeting
  • December 18 – Completion of project due

The four winners will be chosen by a judging panel consisting of city council members, a youth commission member, and appointed city staff. Winners will be selected based on the criteria for originality, connection to the community, and creativity.

Residents can enter online or fill out an entry form at the front desk of Brighton City Hall. For a full list of contest rules, eligibility requirements or to enter, visit at For questions call Public Information & Marketing Manager Zachary Reece at 303-655-2141.
