The News Challenge Grant is still allowing voting on proposals even though the entry deadline has past. If we win this grant, we will be able to improve our web site at PGCares.org to be a more complete resource of news and organizations for Prince Georgians who Care. We'll also work with high school students to train them in open source and web technology and they'll be exposed to county news and organizations that can help them with their future. It has been endorsed by the president of the Prince George's Co. Civic Federation and the president of the county chapter of the Sierra Club. It is supported by a local artist who works with children and a county high school English teacher, who are included in the proposal. Also, Van Caldwell, Chair of the Livable Communities Initiative, posted a positive comment.
