What is this virtual event about?

Digital4Good celebrates students who are using digital technology to make a positive impact in their communities. We’re shining a spotlight on student innovation and leadership to show the world just what kids + teens can do with the right tools, education, and encouragement.

The annual Digital4Good Summit celebrates ten outstanding student innovators who are using digital media and technology to solve problems and advance social, economic, environmental, and educational causes. The Summit is a LiveStream event, which means that virtual participation is limitless. The winners are also paired with mentors in relevant industries who can help them grow and advance their causes.


Donations are a cornerstone of our operating budget. They support program development, promotion, and facilitation; fund workshops and events; and provide training materials and resources to those in need.
