USAID's Digital Development Award: Apply Now!

Hi all,

I’m pleased to announce that we just launched the USAID Digital Development
Awards (the Digis)!

My guess is that many on this list have worked on a project (or three) that
could be considered a winner, so I encourage you to all apply.

In addition to the publication and video, we’re also hoping to organize an
awards ceremony later this year, so stayed tuned.
