Win a ‘Govie Award’ – Submit an Innovative Gov 2.0 Application

Build innovative applications and help make transparent, collaborative and open government a reality!

Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase is scheduled to take place on Sept. 8 in Washington, D.C., in conjunction with the Gov 2.0 Summit, an ‘invite-only’ brainstorming get-together of technology and government leaders. The events are co-produced by O'Reilly Media and TechWeb. Federal CIO Vivek Kundra, Army CIO Jeffrey Sorenson and Microsoft Chief Strategy Officer Craig Mundie will be among the featured speakers at the Gov 2.0 Summit.

The Government 2.0 Summit and Expo showcase will focus on the principles of participation, collaboration, and transparency to help reshape the way government business is conducted by enabling citizens to participate in government deliberations and decision making through the effective use of technology. The Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase encourages government-technology architects, developers, IT managers, and other leaders to showcase their real-world projects. Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase will feature 20 projects, in five categories: process, provider, partner, protector, and peacemaker. Information on the event and how to submit your proposals for consideration can be found here. Speakers selected for the Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase will give five-minute presentations, and a "Govie Award" will go to the top project in each category.
