Upcoming Important Dates: Community Meet Ups

Written by Megan Collyer | Monday, Jan 18, 2016

“Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?’”— Martin Luther King, Jr.

As we remember him today, we wanted to take a minute to call your attention to the Dewey Winburne Community Service Awards, and encourage you to attend the event in March. These awards celebrate the spirit of community in Austin that is unique to SXSW. Each spring, ten recipients are recognized for their use of digital technology to help others. Come see what our award recipients are doing for others by attending on Sunday, March 13 at the JW Marriott. Admission is free and open to the public.
