NEH Contest Encourages Use of Open Data

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) introduced the Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers Data Challenge, a contest inviting U.S. “hackers and data enthusiasts” to produce web-based tools, data visualizations, or other projects using the open data from the Chronicling America digital repository of U.S. newspapers. The repository has 10 million pages of historically significant newspapers published from 1836 to 1922.

The first-place winner will receive $5,000, and runners-up will also win cash prizes. The winners will be invited to present their project at the September 2016 National Digital Newspaper Program meeting at the NEH’s headquarters.

For more information, read the press release.
