We're thrilled to spread the word about the second annual Juicy Ideas Competition, sponsored by AdvantageWest and DigitalChalk!

Google is excited to support the Juicy Ideas competition again this year by hosting the winning team at company headquarters in Mountain View California in Summer 2010, where winners will also each receive an Android-powered phone.

Juicy Ideas 2010 is asking you: "What can you do with data?"

Useful data streams are published by governments, private companies, NGOs, and other services and we want to see how you can harness this data to benefit your community in the form of a software application. Submissions will be judged on their ability to disseminate data and benefit the community, on the usability of the application, and on the business potential of the idea.

This year's contest is open to communities where Google operates offices or datacenters in the US, and universities within 50 km of offices are invited to participate. We've also invited school from last year's Juicy Ideas to join again.

Ready? Form a team of 3-5 students at an eligible college or university.

Set? Research publicly available data, come up with a business plan for that data.

Juice! Create a software application that uses the data to benefit your community, and upload a demo video to Youtube. You'll be judged on the app and the video.

The contest period runs from today through April 11 2010, so get started at www.juicyideas.com!
