305 cities representing more than 64 million Americans applied for the Bloomberg Philanthropies Mayor's Challenge, a competition encouraging local governments to innovate in their communities.

20 finalists have emerged from the fray, and the Huffington Post and Bloomberg Philanthropies have launched an online platform, the Mayor's Challenge Fan Favorite, for citizens across the country to view video proposals from 20 mayors and select "the civic innovation Americans most want to see succeed," write Michael Bloomberg and Arianna Huffington.
