<http://cddrl.fsi.stanford.edu/> are now accepting applications for an
online competition and learning opportunity. The bilingual Civic Tech
Leadership Program <http://civictechleaders.org/> 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.
