The key question: How might we improve the way citizens and
governments interact? On the News Challenge:
Through this contest, we hope to
help extend the spirit of open gov and to catalyze partnerships between
hackers, civic innovators, governments, journalists and others. We also want to
drive more open government wins in local communities, particularly beyond big
cities. And we want to reinforce the idea that the promise of open government
cuts across ideological, demographic and geographic lines.
