On September 30 the Knight News Challenge for Libraries came to a close. The main question: How might we leverage libraries as a platform to build more knowledgeable communities?

Winners will be announced in January 2015 and could win a share of $2.5 million. About 680 entries were submitted. See the above link for all the interesting project ideas that were submitted. It is interesting to note that you did not have to be a librarian to submit an idea. The Knight News Challenge was very open to seeing what the larger community thinks.

If any of the blog viewers has submitted an entry, please let us know. I welcome your comments.
