Show us a better way was a competition to stimulate ideas on how to improve public services through information. The prizes were: a £60,000 fund to develop ideas further and £20,000 for working prototypes.
There was an additional prize of a Macbook Air for the best idea from a civil servant. This was to encourage participation online and to stimulate and reward innovation within the service.
The Cabinet Office will be awarding a Macbook Air to one civil servant for their winning idea of a school catchment area tool.
