An initiative of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Knight News Challenge on Libraries launches on February 24, 2016, and offers applicants a share of more than $3 million for ideas centered on libraries as they transform to accommodate the evolving needs of our communities. Knight views libraries as important institutions that can play an essential role in building more informed and engaged communities, and recognizes that libraries have the power to connect people and ideas, and build stronger democracies. This is the second Knight News Challenge on Libraries; winners of the first challenge were announced in January 2015.
