Did you hear about the SXSW Interactive Scholarship Program but felt that time was running out? Never fear, because we are extending the deadline to 11:59 pm CDT on July 31 to make sure that we get as many quality entries from individuals using innovative technology and new media to address significant community challenges as possible. Nominate your self, nominate a friend or nominate a community leader who is using technology to help improve the lives of others. If chosen, you will both receive a complimentary registration to the SXSW Interactive festival in 2015.

Individuals can be volunteers, entrepreneurs with their own business or startup or work at a charity or non-profit for a living. All are welcome to participate. Just give SXSW Interactive a glimpse into the good work happening in your community and you could be one of ten deserving community scholarship winners. Check out the criteria here and get to work on your essay today.
