The frustrating and lengthy lines at airport security is a most dreaded experience for airline travelers. The TSA even recognizes this and they're asking for help.

The agency is soliciting the public to share ideas for a more efficient security screening process, offering up $15,000 for the solutions.

"Solvers are expected to provide the concept and provide evidence that it works as described in the requirements," that challenge overview states. They're looking for a model that includes a way to move travelers through airport queues while taking peak flight-hours, flight schedules and TSA staffing into consideration.

The TSA says they will award one prize of at least $5,000 and others of at least $2,500 for the top ideas. More than 2000 solutions have been submitted in the last two weeks.
