The Department of Education is inviting businesses, nonprofits, academic institutions and entrepreneurs to join a $50K prize competition to update its public-facing website.

ED.gov Redesign Challenge participants have until June 15 to offer creative design prototypes for the site’s home, program office, grant, contact, media and informational pages, according to a special notice posted Tuesday.

The department wants to retain its color scheme and seal as well as ensure compliance with federal accessibility standards into a redesigned online portal.

ED noted it may divide the prize among multiple winners that would propose ideas to improve the design, presentation, interactivity and navigation of its website.

Proposers may also receive an invitation to deliver presentations to an expert panel at the department’s Washington, D.C. office and will have the chance to bid for a concept implementation contract.
