WASHINGTON, D.C. (KERO) — $500,000 dollars are up for grabs in a contest to improve face masks. The Biden Administration is launching the Mask Innovation Challenge.

Some improvements the government would like to see are the same things that annoy everyone about masks: foggy glasses, skin problems, and comfort.

People have until April 21st to submit their ideas. You can find more information at Challenge.gov website.
