Honorees for the 2011 Dewey Winburne Community Service Award at #SxSW

Honorees for the 2011 Dewey Winburne Community Service Award Announced

dewey_w.jpgDewey Winburne served as one of the original co-founders of the event that we now know as the SXSW Interactive Festival. 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. His view of the power of technology to change the world was refreshing, particularly in an industry that is too often devoted to superficial trends and stock IPOs, his vision of community paved the way for the event we enjoy today.

Although Dewey passed away in 1999, his legacy continues via the lives of the many digital creatives he touched in Austin and around the world. Each spring, SXSW Interactive honors his vision with the Dewey Winburne Community Service Award. This award helps draw attention to the many wonderful people in Austin who are using technology to improve this city in so many different ways. Indeed, this award celebrates the spirit of community in Austin that is entirely unique to this city and unique to SXSW.

Dewey Winburne Community Service Award honorees:

Jim Allan, Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired
Tricia Berry, Texas Girls Collaborative Project
Lisa Byrd, ProArts Collective
Roberta Przybylski, Austin Computer Learning Center
Brian Ramos, BeatLab
Mando Rayo, Cultural Strategies
Connie Reece, the Frozen Pea Fund
Carl Settles, the Media Communications Council
Allen Weeks, Austin Voices for Education and Youth
Monica Williams, GivingCity Austin

Come celebrate these ten honorees and the spirit of community that their accomplishments embody on Friday evening, March 11 at a special ceremony at the Driskill Hotel (604 Brazos, 6th & Brazos). The reception begins at 6:00 pm, and the ceremony commences at 7:00 pm. For 2011, this ceremony is dedicated to the memory of Gary Chapman. A professor at the LBJ School in Austin, a huge advocate of technology's role in shaping a better tomorrow and a former Dewey Winburne Community Service honoree, Chapman passed away in December 2010.

The Friday, March 11 event at the Driskill is open to all -- no SXSW badge is required to attend.
