Helps Us Steal An Idea!

vote for your favorite urban solution

Thanks to the generous support of Spring Point Partners, The Philadelphia Citizen is launching the $50,000 Jeremy Nowak Urban Innovation Award, named in honor of our late founding chairman, Jeremy Nowak. The Award will allow one solution from our Ideas festival to launch in Philadelphia in 2019.

Here’s how it works:


LISTEN TO presentations you may have missed, or cast a vote you skipped.

SCORE EACH SOLUTION based on what you think would work best in Philly

SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS! We’ll keep the voting open for a couple of weeks for anyone who wasn’t able to attend
