Community Service Awards for Individuals
Six INDIVIDUALS will receive a grant to an eligible 501(c)(3) or eligible charity of their choice as well as a complimentary registration to SXSW 2018. The Community Service Award is intended to honor the breadth of community service work of 6 individuals rather than organizations or groups. We are looking for individuals whose creative community service work bridges the digital divide, impacts the community positively and includes some degree of grassroots or hands-on organizing. This community service award celebrates the life and work of SXSW Interactive co-founder, Dewey Winburne. Learn more about Dewey's life here.
