Apps for Communities Challenge: $100,000 in Prizes

THE KNIGHT Foundation and the FCC challenge you to develop a software application that delivers personalized, actionable information to people that are least likely to be online. The Challenge initiative will offer up to $100,000 in prizes to winning application developers and is intended to bring together providers of public data, developers and traditionally underserved populations through a national contest.

The goals of the Challenge are to:
  • make local public information more personalized, usable and accessible for all Americans;
  • promote broadband adoption, particularly among Americans who are less likely to be regular Internet users; and
  • create better links between Americans and services provided by local, state, Tribal and federal governments.
