SABEW Staff Report

PHOENIX–The Pioneer Institute for public policy research is holding its 22nd annual Better Government Competition (BGC), a way for experts and average joes to put forth their best ideas to solve one of the government’s myriad problems. This year’s competition is centered on job creation – how to facilitate it, nurture it and keep the “Great American Job Engine roar(ing) once again.” The deadline for entries is Mon., April 8.

If you have an innovative and enterprising idea to stimulate the job market, you can enter the contest at the Pioneer Institute’s website. Beyond making a difference, you can win a $10,000 award for the best submission. Four $1,000 prizes will be awarded to the runners-up, and an awards dinner will be held in June 2013, complete with a notable public figure as a keynote speaker.

The BGC is a true grassroots competition, empowering any American to make his or her voice not only heard, but also put into action. Past winners have been implemented in numerous state and federal policies and even saved the state of Massachusetts more than half a billion dollars.
