Amazon.com said its call for second headquarters proposals received 238 bids from cities and regions in 54 states and provinces across North America.

The Seattle-based internet retailer and cloud computing giant launched its contest for a $5 billion, 50,000-employee “HQ2” in September. Amazon asked North American governments to submit bids for the campus including infrastructure data, demographics and potential subsidies.
