Submissions

I realize that the submissions cannot be viewed, but I am curious to know how many total submissions there were. Also, are we still on target for the 20 finalist to be announced on January 23? How will finalist be notified? Will it be posted to this website?
Thank you

    I would love know also. I was pretty sure it said January 23, but now I am looking and it says February 23. Do they move it back one more month again?

    This was posted to the website about a month ago under the Update tab.

    Please see below for an update regarding the Joining Forces Community Challenge:

    The Joining Forces Community Challenge will be conducted in two stages. During the first stage, the White House will announce 20 finalists on January 23, 2012. In the second stage, winners will be selected with input from a panel of judges. In addition, finalists will be profiled on Challenge.gov where the public will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite--the People's Choice winner. Public voting and additional judging will take place after finalists are announced and continue to February, when the White House will announce a winner on February 24, 2012. Winners' profiles will be featured at Champions of Change, the Administration's website where extraordinary community efforts in the areas of innovation and education are celebrated.

    I could not find a time and it is driving me nuts! I hope they put us all out of our misery soon. I set up a google alert hoping something will pop into my email but I'm not holding my breathe for it.

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/champions is where I was told it will be published and that 20 finalist will get an email once they are posted.
