Student Hometown Projects - Cross Plains
Four undergraduate students have been given the opportunity to identify and solve an issue in their hometowns by partnering with a community organization and a UW-Madison faculty mentor through the Wisconsin Open Education Community Fellowship. The undergraduates will receive $3,000 stipends as well as up to $1,000 for project expenses, and each of their community partners and mentors will receive $1,000 for participating in the project. One of the four undergraduates, Kristen Bednar of Cross Plains, will be working with The Life Foundation to develop the Cross Plains Parkway market. This will create a much-needed space for local farmers and artisans to directly sell their produce and work on main street in Cross Plains.
