Texas Public Policy Action has announced the Texas Government Waste Contest. The contest runs from September 3 through November 14, 2014.
“Even in Texas there is an incredible amount of wasteful spending, political favoritism, and crony capitalism. This contest will help to expose waste and cronyism,” said TPPA Executive Director Nathanael Ferguson. “By creating a compendium of government waste we will arm taxpayers with the information they need to focus elected officials on solving problems and working to affect change.”
According to TPPA’s press release, contestants will submit their story of government waste in an essay or a original creative video. Entries should be submitted here: www.TexWaste.com. You can also find out more about the contest at that link.
Winners in each category will get $4,000 for first place, $2,000 for second and $1,000 for third.
All entries are limited to Texas, either state or local government.
