Got a bright idea?

If you have a better idea for how to improve homeland security, now's the time to be heard ' but make it quick. The Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation has extended its deadline to May 30, for the $25,000 Homeland Security Award program.

The annual program is set up to 'encourage and promote cutting-edge innovation in the homeland security area to provide incentive for continuing research," according to the foundation, an independent agency established by Congress in 1992. The prize is presented by helicopter-maker AgustaWestland.

The categories that will be considered for the prize are:
  • Biological, radiological, nuclear, chemical and explosive attacks.
  • Border and transportation security.
  • Emergency responses to natural and man-made disasters.
  • Cybersecurity and information sharing.
  • Other.

Submissions can be made here. There is no entry fee.

The foundation said it will not claim ownership of any intellectual property submitted.
