Video: Red Wing Prepares Students for Futures in Technology
Red Wing and Goodhue County are thriving. They were a finalist in Deluxe Corporation’s Small Business Revolution – Main Street contest. They were the first rural community to become a US Ignite community, and in 2014, they hosted what might be the first rural Hackfest in the US, certainly the first in Minnesota. Efforts are led by Red Wing Ignite, part of a national effort to encourage communities that have Gig access to make good use of it. Red Wing Ignite is an incubator, convener, and supporter of technology in the schools and business community.
