Dewey Ceremony + AIR-Interactive Awards
    Sunday March 11, 2012 7:00pm - 9:00pm @ St. David's Episcopal Church (301 E 8th St, Austin, TX 78701)

    In today's world, technology is more than just a convenience; it is a vessel through which visionaries can tackle tough problems, raise their voices, and improve lives. The 2012 Dewey Ceremony and AIR-Interactive Awards celebrates the potential of technology for good - and those who are driving the change!

    The Dewey Winburne Community Service Awards
    Dewey Winburne, a co-founder of the SXSW Interactive Festival, was a teacher who spent much of his energy training at-risk youth to make use of digital technology. Dewey believed that the new media revolution could help level the playing field between the haves and the have-nots in our society. SXSW Interactive honors his vision each spring with the Dewey Winburne Community Service Award.

    In 2012, ten honorees from around the country and the globe will be recognized for their contribution to society through technology.

    AIR-Interactive
    The Accessibility Internet Rally, started in Austin in 1999, is a web-development competition that teaches the importance of making information technology accessible for all people - including those with disabilities. Each year, teams of volunteer web developers come together to learn accessible design skills and to build a website for an artist, musician, or non-profit organization in their community.

    In 2012, seven teams are competing from Austin and across the nation in this dynamic program.

    Join us at 7:00 pm on Sunday, March 11 at St. David's Church (301 East 8th St) to honor these outstanding community activitists! Plus, enjoy the music of Mother Falcon, a local favorite, after the ceremony!

    Appetizers will be served at 7:00pm; a cash bar with a selection of beer and wine will be available.

    Admission to the Dewey Ceremony does NOT require a SXSW badge. The public is welcome!
