(WTVR) — The Federal Trade Commission is asking for the public’s help to stop those annoying  robocalls.

The FTC is putting money on the line in a new contest, which is open to the public, to   “create solutions that will block illegal robocalls.”

The winning submission will net $50,000 and a trip to Washington to present the solution.

So far, the FTC has received more than 230 submissions. 

If you want to enter your idea, you still have time. The deadline is Jan. 17. [BONUS: Click here to check out the ‘Robocall Challenge’ website]
