In early 2021, PUB applied for and received a Good Idea Grant from the UW-Madison Extension Sauk County Education, Arts & Culture Committee to partially fund a video introducing Powered Up Baraboo to the Baraboo community. This video is used when members of Powered Up Baraboo visit–in person or virtually–with community groups to tell them about our organization's work and ask for their support in our efforts.
