2017 Topic: “Aging in America” – Deadline March 20, 2017

Pioneer Institute’s Better Government Competition is an annual idea contest that attracts the interest of experts and ordinary citizens alike. Since 1991, the Competition has served as a forum that rewards and promotes the nation’s most innovative policy ideas. The Competition grand prize winner receives $10,000; four runners-up receive $1,000 each, and other proposals receive special recognition. The 2017 contest seeks novel ideas to establish effective care and sustainable support systems for the elderly, and to better leverage the social capital of our aging population. We aim to identify and promote those ideas which can ensure a better future for aging citizens in Massachusetts, and the country, through programs for housing, health care and public health as well as unique partnerships between government agencies and care providers. Download the 2017 BGC Guidelines and submit your entry below by March 20, 2017 at 4:00 PM ET:
