The fifth Digital Media and Learning Competition–the Project:Connect Summer Youth Programming Competition-– is accepting applications through June 10 for awards made starting July.
The inaugural NYC-based youth hackathon, sponsored through the Hive Learning Network, is an example of what young people envision when given the time and space to design for a web that best serves them. Now, the Project:Connect-Summer Youth Programming Competition aims to expand this opportunity through its call for summer event and programming proposals to excite and enable youth to engage the web in civil, collaborative, productive, safe, and confidence-building ways. The Competition supports single or multi-day participatory and hands-on learning experiences (labs, hackathons, pop-up events) that support youth working with peers, mentors, and educators in order to work toward a better web for all. Based on the principles of Connected Learning—learning that is equitable, social, and participatory—Project:Connect Summer Youth Programs will give young people hands-on experience creating, testing, and investigating ways to make using the web a better place to learn, connect, make, contribute, and share.
The Project:Connect-Summer Youth Program Competition is administered by HASTAC and supported by the MacArthur Foundation, in collaboration with the Born This Way Foundation and Mozilla. A related Open International Competition focused on Digital Tools for Democracy will be announced on June 17, 2013. For the latest news, connect with us in one of the ways listed below.
