#DestinChamber Tuesday Talking Points
October 16, 2018
Greetings!
Thank you to the many generous area businesses and residents donating supplies and assisting our neighbors to the east. Our Destin Forward Class, in conjunction with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast, is collecting personal hygiene products to be distributed by the clubs in the affected areas. Items may be dropped off at the Chamber. We have also highlighted other donation opportunities in the post pinned to the top of our Facebook page. The list is by no means comprehensive as new efforts are popping up daily.

Did You Know?
Early voting for the Nov. 6 election starts Oct. 22 in Okaloosa County and Oct. 27 in Walton County. You may view sample ballots on the Okaloosa County and Walton County Supervisor of Election websites. Please note that the ballot includes many constitutional amendments, so do your research. One source we have found helpful is the Florida Chamber of Commerce.

While we are providing you with a link to the Florida Chamber of Commerce Constitutional Amendment website, this is in no way an endorsement of the positions the Florida Chamber has taken on these amendments. This link is provided to you as a “for your information only” resource.
2018 Congressional App Challenge
The 2018 Congressional App Challenge is a district-wide competition, designed to encourage student interest and participation in fields such as STEM, Cybersecurity, Coding, Computer Science, etc. This competition allows students to compete with peers in their own district by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for web, PC, tablet, mobile, or other platform of their choice. The culminating event for this competition will take place at the 2018 Congressional App Challenge and STEM/Cybersecurity Expo on Saturday, Oct. 27, at University of West Florida's Pensacola Campus.
