Street Team sought for new website, What’s Up St. Chuck 

ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO --- Enthusiastic writers and photographers are being sought by the civic group Partners for Progress of Greater St. Charles to serve as the Street Team for “What’s Up St. Chuck,” a new, go-to website geared toward 20- to 40-year-olds in search of events, restaurants, wineries/breweries, bars, sports and fitness in St. Charles County.
Expected to launch later this spring, the What’s Up St. Chuck Street Team will be hitting the pavement to curate content and take community photos to populate the new website.
“Both the website and Street Team are the first of their kind in St. Charles County. We are creating a place online where 20- to 40-year-olds can tap into all St. Charles County has to offer,” said Kerin Miller, Creative & Events Director for the Economic Development Center of St. Charles County (EDC) and the civic group Partners for Progress of Greater St. Charles (PfP). “There are rec sports leagues, music events, eclectic restaurants, hiking trails and bars no one has ever heard of in our community. It’s time to change that. So get ready for the What’s Up St. Chuck Street Team to cover the entire county and bring great event and destination information to everyone.”

Team members will also meet on a monthly basis to brainstorm while working under the direction of EDC-PfP Website Coordinator Elizabeth Seibel.

Applications with work samples are being accepted online through February 12, 2015. For more information about joining the team or to complete an application, click here.
