Recognize free software heroes in Cascadia at SeaGL

by Georgia Young Contributions Published on Sep 05, 2018 03:51 PM
Nominations are open for the 2018 Cascadia Community Builder Award!

Presented in November 2018, at the Seattle GNU/Linux Conference (SeaGL), the Cascadia Community Builder Award honors the free software work of people living in the Cascadia region of the United States and Canada. The award is designed to recognize work in software projects, non-profit organizations, outreach and education, hackerspaces, user groups, or any activity that promotes the adoption and appreciation of free software to new and larger groups of people. The awards committee is especially interested in individuals who have successfully reached out to traditionally under-represented groups, even if that isn’t their primary goal.

To nominate someone, please send us an email at with the nominee’s name in the subject line. Make sure you include the following details:

  • Name and email address of the nominee (if you have it)
  • A sentence or two about why you think they deserve this award
  • Projects or organizations they serve through (links are very helpful!)

Please only nominate people who are doing their free software work in the Cascadia region and who are currently living. Thanks in advance for helping to honor a great community builder!

The award will be presented at SeaGL, which takes place November 9 and 10, 2018 at Seattle Central College in Seattle, Washington. Want to be part of the action? SeaGL is actively seeking volunteers! Just email and introduce yourself!

SeaGL is a free software conference that is fiscally sponsored by the FSF through its Working Together for Free Software Fund. You can make a donation in support of SeaGL here.
