One $5 million grand prize and four additional prizes of $1 million each will be awarded to the cities whose ideas have the best potential to take root and spread. This is an opportunity to help fund an idea that can meaningfully change the lives of people in your city and in other cities.
20 finalists will gain entrance to Ideas Camp this fall — a two-day gathering of the top city innovators who will come together to strengthen each other's ideas and bolster plans to see them through.
The finalists also will receive individualized coaching from top experts who will help cities stretch their ideas and prepare for final submission.
Enjoy national and local recognition for your award–winning, visionary idea. Show the people in your city — and in cities across the country — that your city is up to the challenge.
