TSA offers rewards for innovative screening-line solutions

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Transportation Security Administration will offer rewards totaling $15,000 to those who can come up with the most innovative ideas on how to expedite the airport screening process.

With the TSA now dealing with a variety of travelers to screen -- including premium passengers, TSA PreCheck members, pilots and crew members, and those in wheelchairs -- the traditional first-come, first-served system can be more time consuming than necessary.

Those who have new, organized solutions on moving people through airport queues can submit their entries to the TSA by Aug. 15. The total payout will be $15,000, with at least one award being no smaller than $5,000 and no award being smaller than $2,500.

To apply, go to innocentive.com/ar/challenge/9933343.
