Generation Citizen's Civic Tech Challenge

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to shoot the awards and presentations show that concluded a day-long hackathon called the Civic Tech Challenge.

Generation Citizen organized this amazing event, which paired change-seeking kids with professoinal and student technologists to help them develop a method that might help their message reach the most people — from video blogs to visually engaging petitions. After a day of working in small groups, the kids and technologists presented their issues to a panel of judges and an incredibly supportive audience.
