Have you heard about the unique scholarship opportunity SXSW Interactive offers to community do-gooders and their admirers? Whether you've only just heard about it, or perhaps you need a little more time to complete your entry, fear not. We're extending the deadline for scholarship applications through the weekend until Sunday, July 28 at 11:59pm.

Tell your friends and colleagues, because this may be just the thing to help launch someone doing good things for communities here and abroad on to the next level. (Also, don't hesitate to nominate yourself if you have an incredible community service mission.) Five winning essays will be chosen and we will award a SXSW Interactive registration to the essay writer AND the subject of the essay. That's right, we're awarding TWO FREE registrations to the five best social good stories we can find.
