It has been almost a year since the 2012 release of the Index of Awesome, a printed zine celebrating the uniqueness, authenticity, and genuine awesomeness of Covington. You’ve patiently awaited the next chapter as we’ve spent 2013 building on the momentum of last year by cultivating an unwavering positive energy that is sure to endure. This film was created with and for everyone who believes Covington is awesome.
Thank you Covington for being inspired to be the change and in appreciation for your love for this city, we would like to present to you the official trailer for the 2013 film edition of the Index of Awesome.
Enjoy!…. and share.
Recently the Awesome Collective spent three days with hundreds of other community change-makers in Sacramento, CA at the NeighborWorks Community Leadership Institute. We would like to give a HUGE thank you to LISC and NeighborWorks America for providing all participants the opportunity to travel from all over the country to share stories of success, learn from one another, and grow as organizations. We met awesome people who were doing awesome things all across the country and we are inspired and excited to continue promoting, facilitating, and encouraging awesomeness in Covington. Also, THANK YOU to the Center for Great Neighborhoods for encouraging and supporting the Awesome Collective during our application process.

The students at Glenn O. are Awesome! Look at the mural they helped create by each drawing what they believe makes Covington Awesome. We had such a great time in the sunshine with some amazing people. A huge big thanks to all of our fantastic, hardworking volunteers, as well as the super supportive faculty of Glenn O. and the biggest thanks to all of the most Awesome students who we had so much fun with!

This is very cool! Seniors, Kody and Tre, of Holmes High School have delivered their completed work to the offices of Hub and Weber. How Awesome! If you attended the 2012 release of the Index of Awesome then you might remember meeting these very talented students as well as a sneak peak of this work prior to completion. We are glad to see it now, and look forward to the wonderful impact it will bring to who ever gets to view it. We celebrate your pride for community and passion for art, thank you for being awesome!
