A Couple Million For Your Thoughts

13 Jul

Mayor Michael Bloomberg (aka Mayor Mikey B) is launching a competition that’ll have cities vying for $9 million in prizes. This reward-driven do-gooder campaign, dubbed The Mayors Challenge, is offering up $5 million to the city with the best idea on how to make “government work better, solve a serious problem, or improve city life.” Four runners up will each earn $1 million.

The rules are fairly straightforward: only mayors of cities with 30,000 residents or more can apply (sorry Zzyzx) and each applicant must fill out an online application. But act quickly mayors, the deadline to RSVP and secure your city’s spot in the competition is today.
