To create StoryMarket, a crowd-funding platform for public radio, so citizens can pay for the professional production of stories they would like to see in the news

Building on the software created by 2008 challenge winner Spot.us, this project will allow anyone to pitch and help pay to produce a story for a local public radio station. When the amount is raised (in small contributions), the station will hire a professional journalist to do the report. The project provides a new way for public radio stations to raise money, produce more local content and engage listeners.
