Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase the number of barn quilts on the Barn Quilts of Central Minnesota Trail from 18 to 36, by December 2017. Barn Quilts of Central Minnesota members will identify and support at least 10 high school youth in creating barn quilts by May of 2017. Barn Quilts of Central Minnesota members will increase public awareness and usage of the Barn Quilts of Central Minnesota Trail by developing and tracking new avenues of marketing the trail. Barn Quilts of Central Minnesota members will maintain and track the number of quilts added to the trail. Barn Quilts of Central Minnesota members will track and record the number of youth who participate in this project. Barn Quilts of Central Minnesota members will establish a baseline of the level of public awareness of the Barn Quilts of Central Minnesota and its usage. They will utilize a number of methods to collect and track this data. These include tracking the number of Barn Quilts of Central Minnesota images (selfie or otherwise) posted on Facebook or Instagram, very short online and onsite surveys, increased levels of interest in our workshops, brochures, website hits, as well as information shared in casual interviews.
