Project:Connect | Summer Youth Programming Competition Now Open

51513dmllogo Project:Connect | Summer Youth Programming Competition Now OpenThe Project:Connect Summer Youth Programming Competition is now accepting proposals for its fifth Digital Media and Learning (DML5) event. DML supports single or multiday participatory and hands-on learning experiences, such as labs, hackathons, and pop-up events which will be held at U.S.-based organizations from July-September, 2013. 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.

DML5, administered by HASTAC and supported by the MacArthur Foundation, and in collaboration with the Born This Way Foundation and Mozilla, is calling for proposals that offer youth a chance to “Project:Connect” this summer. Proposals must be submitted by June 10, 2013, and the competition is open to all U.S.-based nonprofit learning development and civic engagement institutions and organizations, including libraries, after-school programs and museums. Selected programs, each eligible for awards of up to $10,000, will run July through September 2013.
