Help Milwaukee win $50,000

The City of Milwaukee is competing against the 19 other Bloomberg Philanthropies' Mayors Challenge finalists for Mayors Challenge Fan Favorite as part of a competition hosted by the Huffington Post.

People can view the Mayors Challenge videos and op-eds from the finalists at the Huffington Post Mayors Challenge and cast their votes by March 6.

Milwaukee's video and the op-ed from Mayor Barrett focus on HOME GR/OWN Milwaukee – the City's innovative idea to transform foreclosed properties into community assets designed to improve public health and spark economic opportunity.

The winner will receive a $50,000 services grant from IBM, featured coverage by the Huffington Post, a monthly front page column for the winning mayor and an interview with Arianna Huffington on "Huff Post Live."

Citizens are also encouraged to share information about the competition on Facebook and other social media platforms using the hash tag #VoteMKE.
