Every year SXSW honors 10 amazing people serving their communities in different ways in honor of SXSW Interactive co-founder, Dewey Winburne. Dewey was one of the original co-founders of the SXSW Interactive Festival, but he was many other things in the Austin community: a family man, a teacher, a visionary, a connector and an innovator. He believed that technology could bridge the digital divide and help those less fortunate than others.
Knowbility stands to prove that all individuals deserve an opportunity to make an impact in their community through access to education, career, and opportunities to pursue all things web technology. The SXSW Dewey awards are intended to honor technology change makers that are using hi-tech for good in their communities.
Nominate someone you know (or yourself) at http://www.sxsw.com/interactive/awards/dewey-winburne today through August 7, 2015, for a chance to be honored at the SXSW Interactive festival in March 2016. Each honoree also receives $1,000 to grant to their favorite 501(c)(3).
