APPLICATIONS ARE DUE APRIL 7, 2010

Wednesday is the deadline to submit a program or nominate an initiative for the Innovations in American Government Award .

Administered by the Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard Kennedy School, the Innovations Award is heralded as the premier public-sector award in the nation. It is given annually to programs that serve as examples of creative and effective government at its best.

This year the Innovations program has also launched a new initiative, Bright Ideas , designed to recognize and promote promising government programs and partnerships.

All units of government--federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial--from all policy areas are eligible to apply for recognition.

The top winner of the 2010 Innovations Award will receive a $100,000 grant to support replication and dissemination activities. Top finalists will also receive monetary grants.

Applications and additional information for both initiatives are available on the application website: www.innovationsaward.harvard.edu .
