The goal of the prize competition is to produce an open source electronic school meal application that states and school districts can adapt for their own use. FNS hopes to develop a prototype that incorporates the best ideas from the innovation community at large. The application will contain a minimum FNS-defined package of design features that target applicant error and reduce applicant burden.

FNS looks to innovators in design, human behavior, and software development to build upon these goals and give life to a model application that is visually appealing, easy to use, fast and efficient, and technically sound. Prize Competition Sponsor: The prize competition is being sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), 3101 Park Center Drive, Alexandria, VA 22302. The Contest Sponsor, and only the Contest Sponsor, makes all decisions related to the development, management, and implementation of the Contest.
