Dewey Winburne was one of the original co-founders of the SXSW Interactive Festival. He believed that technology could bridge the digital divide and help those less fortunate than others. Although Winburne passed away in 1999, his legacy continues.

The Dewey Awards celebrate the spirit of community in Austin that we think is unique to SXSW. 10 recipients are recognized for using of digital technology to help others. Each honoree receives a complimentary registration to SXSW, a $1,000 grant to their favorite 501(c)(3) and a chance to spread the word about their work to the SXSW community.

Join us for this FREE and open to the public event, which does not require a SXSW credential of any kind. To learn more about this year’s honorees, check out the Dewey Awards page.
