Big Idea Project provides a student-centered approach to education that connects the head and the heart through experiential learning, resulting in personal development that goes beyond knowledge. They provide schools with a comprehensive leadership development program that goes beyond academic skills to meet the needs of the whole student, equipping them for life beyond the classroom. They work closely with teachers (the heroes of the classroom) to provide training, resources, business mentors and on-site support so they can unlock their students’ potential.


Platte River Networks is excited to announce its second year of sponsorship of Horizon High School in partnership with the Big Idea Project®, a not-for-profit organization that brings businesses and schools together to develop and empower our nation’s future generous leaders.

Through this sponsorship, Platte River Networks will be working with Horizon’s Big Idea Project teachers and students to encourage and advise young leaders. Platte River Networks aims to provide real-world learning opportunities, foster students’ career goals, and build a lasting relationship with Horizon.
