Photo by Carl RobinsonWhat creative ways are people using tech for good in your community? We at SXSW Interactive need to know! We are seeking the latest and greatest ideas in the social good space, and will reward you for telling us all about it.

What is the 2014 SXSW Interactive Scholarship Program? It's a way for SXSW to uncover people whose work (whether it's a job, a hobby or volunteering) helps people through technology and invite them to get involved in our March event. Give us the lowdown on the people and organizations making use of technology for the betterment of the community and YOU AND YOUR NOMINEE could win a FREE registration to the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival (happening March 7-11, 2014). So, 1 registration for you + 1 registration for your nominee = 2 amazing opportunities to get the most out of SXSW. That is correct – both you and the subject of your essay win a FREE SXSW Interactive registration if you are one of the 10 winners of this scholarship contest. 1 + 1 = 2

Does this sound like an opportunity you can't miss? Then send in your 300-word essay by the deadline of 11:59pm CDT on Friday, July 26, 2013. Essays should answer the question, "Who is using technology or new media to do the most innovative work for good within their community?" Check out the full details and learn how to enter on the SXSW Interactive scholarship page.
