Greensboro Strong Cities Strong Communities (SC2) Challenge

As one of three cities that won a U.S. Department of Commerce and Economic Development Administration’s Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) grant, Greensboro was able to kick off this Challenge to encourage community involvement in identifying innovative strategies to promote Greensboro’s economic development.  Designed as a two-phase competition, the Challenge offers cash rewards to groups or individuals who develop the best plans to nurture the city’s economic growth, and a final $1 million prize to the overall winner.  To encourage community participation, the City created a website through which residents and organizations can propose ideas, and rate or comment on other people’s suggestions.
