    Challenge.gov launches 100th challenge!

    At the launch of Challenge.gov at the Government 2.0 Summit last fall, U.S. Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra talked about the benefits of challenges fueling innovation. Now 10 months later, he’s marking the 100th challenge on Challenge.gov by sponsoring the Apps Against Abuse Challenge together with Vice President Joe Biden, and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

    Since its debut in September 2010, Challenge.gov has spurred nationwide innovation by bringing citizens and the Federal government together to solve more than 100 challenges from 34 departments and agencies. All together, the competitions generated over 2,000 solutions, and solvers have been awarded more than $10 million dollars in cash and prizes.

    There are challenges that ask individuals, teams, and organizations to create videos, write software, invent products, submit recipes, design graphics, and more. Whatever the challenge is, a common theme emerges – one of creativity, innovation, and a sense of community.

    Check out a challenge on the award-winning Challenge.gov today, and help drive collaborative innovation in open government by creating, supporting, or participating in one.

    Challenge.gov is free, meaningful and there’s nothing to lose. In fact, you may even win something!
