I can see NIST is calling for entries for a competition to discover a
new hash function:

I was hoping they would name the winner of this contest the ASS
(American Signing Standard), but see the winner will be referred to as
the SHA-3 (Secure Hash Algorithm version 3).  No doubt the winner of
this consult will eventually be added to the gpg standard.
