About 6 months ago the City of Pittsburgh launched a contest to attract attention and newcomers to the City. This was one of the first successful contests in the country and began a succession of city contests, many of which have been featured here, on the S4C Featured Ideas pages. In fact, S4C is holding its own Contest Contest, for cities to enter their own contests and vie to win nationwide publicity and kudos (we are still taking entries, click here).
The Pittsburgh contest, called “Experienced Dreamers” offered a $100,000 prize to some mid-life professional who wanted to relocate to Pittsburgh and bring a mission or business with him or her. Now the finalists have been announced, and you can vote on which of them should win. Check it out here.
