    Greater Boston is home to a growing and vibrant community of people interested in the role of technology in civic life: students, entrepreneurs, activists, technologists, and community organizations using their creativity and knowledge to make our governments run better, engage our communities, and improve our quality of life. The Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation’s #Tech4Democracy Showcase and Challenge on October 9, 5-7pm, will bring together the local civic tech community and anyone with an interest in learning more about the intersection of technology and democracy—from those curious about how these technologies can benefit them to community leaders and public officials looking to bring new technology to their work. Presenters will have the opportunity to showcase an idea for a new app, web platform, policy, or program that leverages technology to improve the quality of democratic governance. The best ideas/demonstrations will be selected by a panel of judges and voted on by event attendees. Winning presenters will receive a $5,000 award to help bring their work to the next level.
