Do you have an idea for solving a social problem using technology? Would you 
like to pitch your idea to leading experts, investors
and policymakers? Here’s your chance.

The National Democratic Institute and Stanford CDDRL are now accepting 
applications for an online competition and learning opportunity. The bilingual 
Civic Tech Leadership Program will work with young leaders to develop their 
civic-tech ideas -- and participants with the best ideas will travel to Silicon 
Valley and Washington DC to meet with experts.

than 10 minutes)

What: An online competition to present the most compelling civic-tech idea. 
Participants will work together in small teams to develop an idea and create a 
bilingual video pitch, with support from peers and expert mentors. Winners will 
travel to Silicon Valley and Washington, DC in 2017 to meet leaders in tech and 
policy. This free program is made possible through the generous support of the 
Stevens Initiative.
