Republic: Beyond the Mirage group focused on water

Monday, April 20, 2015

A feature in the Arizona Republic introduced New Arizona Prize winners Beyond the Mirage, headed by Cody Sheehy, whose task it is to encourage Arizonans in finding solutions to protect the state's water supply.

Seeking to prod Arizonans out of possible complacency, a panel backed by the Arizona Community Foundation and the Morrison Institute for Public Policy selected Sheehy's proposal for the $100,000 prize a couple of weeks ago.

The first phase sought proposals that would raise consciousness about water issues; the second phase will call for entrepreneurs to launch business strategies and create products to reduce water consumption.
