The National Ideas Competition

The National Ideas Competition is an independent group of professors, architects, landscape architects, historians, and other professionals dedicated to sponsoring national ideas competitions to encourage the American public, and especially students and young people, to become actively involved in the exchange of ideas about topics of national civic importance. These competitions will give Americans of all ages an opportunity to learn about a topic of national significance, contribute their own ideas, and help shape a national debate of creative and innovative ideas.

The National Ideas Competition is incorporated as a nonprofit organization in the District of Columbia. IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-deductible status is pending.
