Help Plan Our City

The City of Greensboro, NC, has a challenge for you: come up with a local economic development strategy to accelerate job growth and business expansion, and enhance the City’s overall quality of life. Your reward is putting the City on the right track for future success. Your team will compete for cash prizes from a total prize pool of $1 million and the right to say your ideas paved the way for revitalization of NC’s third largest City.

Are You Up for the Challenge?

Mark Twain once said: “Why not go out on a limb? That's where the fruit is.” Greensboro is where that fruit is, thanks to being one of three cities nationwide selected by the US Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) for its Strong Cities Strong Communities (SC2) Initiative. Find out more about all that Greensboro has to offer and what its challenges are. We look forward to seeing what you have to offer as well!
