The NewDEAL (Developing Exceptional American Leaders) was founded to focus on ideas, not ideology.
Led by Honorary Co-Chairs Governor Jack Markell (of Delaware) and Senator Mark Warner (of Virginia), the NewDEAL boasts a network of 140 pro-growth progressive state and local leaders from across America working to modernize government for the 21st century and ensure that all Americans can compete and win in the global economy.
In an effort to find and spread the best ideas from across the country and expand opportunity for all in the changing economy, the NewDEAL sponsored its second New Ideas Challenge this fall.
The competition drew nearly 70 submissions in six categories:
- Modernizing the Safety Net
- Encouraging Innovation
- 21st-Century Education and Skills
- Making Government Work Better
- Tax and Regulatory Reform
- Infrastructure and Energy for the Future
Winners were announced in Washington, D.C., on November 18. Read about these innovative, results-oriented ideas and see what you can “steal” for your community!
