The Hays competition takes place during TransportationCamp DC 2017, an annual unconference, also at Founders Hall. Signing up for TransportationCamp is optional, but if you do, requires a paid admission and has its own registration.

The Hays competition will be followed by a joint reception with TransportationCamp, welcoming attendees from both events.

Hays Outside the Box Competition hosted by George Mason University Schar School of Policy and Government (and sponsors), seeks to support innovative and “outside the box” solutions to challenges in transportation.

In the world of transportation and transportation challenges, it is imperative that we foster the development and implementation of new ideas. Instead of offering the same old solutions–turning the proverbial wheel, but not moving forward– we challenge you to think creatively and offer “outside the box” solutions to complicated transportation policy challenges. So how can you push that wheel forward? How can you effect change?

First prize: $10,000
Second prize: $5,000
Third prize: $2,500

We welcome all thoughtful, innovative and diverse ideas…so inspire us!
