The TSA is offering a $15,000 prize for the best idea that improves the security screening process.
TSA is looking for the Next Generation Checkpoint Queue Design Model to apply a scientific and simulation modeling approach to meet queue design and configuration needs of the dynamic security screening environment,
Yeah, that makes sense. And that description may be part of the problem.
Here’s the contest entry website.
The TSA guarantees they will award a prize. A total of $15,000 is available, and could be awarded to one single entry. At a minimum there will be a $5000 first prize and there could be in theory (4) $2500 prizes (no prize under $2500 will be awarded).
My good friends at ReasonTV released a video entry from Remy. He wins.
(Shout outs for the prompt to K.K., E.C., Tocqueville, and Jenn R.)
