- Webinar recording: Best Practices for Federal Government Contests and Online Challenges (Q&A) (WMV, 89.7 MB, 24 min, February 2012)
A panel of your peers talk about all aspects of innovation challenges and contests for the federal government.
Public sector leaders draw on their firsthand experience with challenges, covering how to get started, costs, legalities, privacy issues, ROI, “lessons learned,” and much more.
At the end of this event you will have ideas that will help you build momentum for challenges at your own agency. You'll also learn how to successfully meet OMB’s March 8th, 2010 call to all agencies to increase the use of challenges and contests.
Note: The Ad Council and Google held a similar panel in July 2010, and based on collective feedback—the need to address specific issues facing federal government departments and agencies—we’re hosting this event for federal government employees only. It will be a completely safe space to discuss what’s working and what isn’t in the world of federal innovation challenges.
About this Event
This briefing, brought to you by GSA, the Ad Council, and Google, is part of the "Seminar Series on Effective Communications," a series of quarterly workshops on various topics related to public service communications. The nonprofit Ad Council is the nation's largest producer of PSA programs, including Smokey Bear, "Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk," McGruff the Crime Dog, and "A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste."
The Center for New Media and Citizen Engagement is part of GSA’s Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies. The Center focuses on providing agencies with easy access to new and existing web 2.0 tools and platforms, supporting the agile use of these tools, and building learning communities of practice around emerging products and services.
In September 2010, in response to the Administration’s call for increased agency use of challenges and prizes, the Center launched Challenge.gov, a platform that makes it easy for all federal agencies to quickly launch new challenges and make federal challenges easily discoverable by the public.
