MeriTalk, a public-private partnership, has launched a new innovation contest that is looking for the best ideas on how to use IT to improve the U.S. government.
The contest, called the Merit Awards, is structured in eight categories – citizen engagement, defense, emergency response, entitlement reform, workforce management and motivation, back office operations, results achievement, and waste. MeriTalk’s panel of judges will recognize a winning entry in each category, with the best overall idea earning the $50,000 award.
The entry process runs today through August 1, and the winning entries will be announced on August 23rd at the Innovation Nation Forum in Washington, D.C. For more information, please visit Meritawards.
So there is your chance, run your mouth about how to improve the government information systems and pick up $50,000 for walk around money.
