Community Foundation launches Prize2TheFuture

If you’ve been online at all today, you’ve probably seen a great deal of buzz about last night’s Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham announcement – the one that introduced Prize2TheFuture to the metro region. It was also the basis of yesterday’s editorial piece on The Terminal.

We figured we’d share some highlights from remarks made during the announcement.

The idea competition is open to everybody (as in international) and is focused on the city block directly to the east of the current phase of Railroad Park and south of the Alabama Power steam plant scheduled to close in 2012.

The website has specific information about the competition and its prize, $50,000; Prize2TheFuture also has digital outposts on Twitter and Facebook.

BTW – if you’re on Twitter, the official hashtag for the competition is #p2tf.
