Contribute To The Challenge

It’s never too late to change the world.

CitySync

The CitySync Ideas and Apps Challenge is now open! Check out the ideas and apps submitted so far. Share your thoughts. Anonymous visitors to CivicApps are free to review the many great ideas and apps. Registered users are encouraged to participate by submitting ideas, rating and commenting on existing ideas and apps. App contributors are afforded all of the above capabilities, plus the submission of apps, and the rating, commenting and the downloading of datasets.

All app submissions will have the option of opting-in to the overall collection of "apps and services" for CitySync, once they are juried for their relative benefit to end users. So whether you win an award or not, you'll likely still have the opportunity to get your app (brand and namesake) out there on one of the City's most important websites!
