EPA Apps Contest
EPA wants developers to help unleash the power of their data and build useful apps.
EPA challenges you to find new ways to combine and deliver environmental data in a new app. In the Apps for the Environment challenge, you have free reign to make an app that uses EPA data, addresses one of Administrator Lisa Jackson’s Seven Priorities, and is useful to communities or individuals. EPA encourages you to use other environmental and health data too. The winners will be honored at a recognition event in Washington, D.C. this fall and the winning apps will be publicized on EPA’s website. — More from EPA.
Anyone can participate. In addition to building apps, EPA hopes that people will share their ideas for others to build. Deadline for is September 16, 2011. Learn more at the challenge site.
