INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — What is on your Indiana bucket list? Who’s the best neighbor you’ve ever had? What would draw people from other countries to live in Indiana?

These are just a few of the questions Indiana Humanities is asking people to think about in a new online program called ALL-IN.

Indiana Humanities will kick off the digital concept Tuesday afternoon. According to the group, the goal is to get Hoosiers to learn about the state, explore the state, connect with each other and make Indiana a better place to live.

ALL-IN has various challenges people can work through, including trying an ethnic restaurant or performing a random act of kindness for a neighbor. Participants can fill out a scorecard and track progress via social media.

Indiana Humanities launched the program, in part, because a 2011 report that ranked Indiana 45th in the country for states that have neighbors working together to solve community problems.

“Hoosiers are spending more time than most Americans in groups, but we’re not working together to solve problems,” said Keira Amstutz, president and CEO of Indiana Humanities, in a news release.
