An article about the inaugural Public Policy Challenge, the interdisciplinary civic campaign competition sponsored by Fels and held earlier this year, is featured in the current issue of Penn Arts & Sciences Magazine.  The article, found on page 3 and entitled "Challenge Champs", details the origins of the program, Fels' role as its creator, and its impact throughout the campus community.  It also spotlights the winning "Land Philadelphia" team and their proposal to transform neglected, tax-delinquent properties into assets to stabilize neighborhoods.  More information about the Challenge and the "Land Philadelphia" initiative can be found on the Public Policy Challenge website.

The second edition of the Challenge will take place during the 2010-11 academic year.
