Ideas for Change in America Contest

January 5, 2009

We’re excited to let you know that this morning we opened voting for the final round of the Ideas for Change in America competition at

As you may know, we launched the competition back in November with MySpace and more than 50 nonprofit partners in response to Barack Obama‘s call for citizen involvement in government. First round voting ended on December 31, and the top rated ideas from a diverse range of 7,783 submissions have qualified for the final round.

The final round of voting ends on January 15, and the following day we are co-hosting an event at the National Press Club with the Case Foundation to announce the top 10 rated ideas and present them to the Obama administration. We will then launch a national campaign in coordination with our nonprofit partners to ensure that each idea gets the full consideration of the administration and 111th Congress.

To select your “Top 10 Ideas for America,” go to and become a part of the people-powered movement leading the call for change in America.

We look forward to seeing you on the site!

– The Team
