A chance for your government to win cloud service credits from Amazon

An opportunity for local governments

Amazon Web Services is luring potential government customers again this year with its AWS City on a Cloud Innovation Challenge.

The contest awards $250,000 in cloud service credits to eight government and company customers that exemplify excellence in the categories of “Best Practices,” “Partners in Innovation,” and “Dream Big” — a category extolling the virtues of ambitious innovation. While a play to enhance innovation and modern methods in the public sector, the contest also doubles as a strategic move by the Seattle juggernaut to create enticing use cases it can transform into selling points to draw new public-sector customers.
