The Knight News Challenge: Elections will open for applications on Feb. 25 asking people to submit ideas that address the question: How might we better inform voters and increase civic participation before, during and after elections?
Winners will receive a share of more than $3 million from the challenge, a collaboration between Knight, the Democracy Fund, Hewlett Foundation and Rita Allen Foundation. We are interested in ideas from anyone including: civic technologists, local election officials, academics, students, startups, and nonprofits, as well as governments and individuals.
Applications will be accepted from Feb. 25 – March 19 on newschallenge.org. For more information take a look at this blog post. Follow #newschallenge on Twitter for updates and please spread the word through your networks.
Please feel free to contact Lucas Hernandez with any questions.
