The awards ceremony will be streaming live out of Los Angeles on both Livestream.com and Facebook. You can watch at:

Watch on Facebook (live video stream will appear there)

22 of the awardees will be in L.A. to receive their awards. (Three were denied visas.) One of the initiatives supporting the Internet Society’s 25th Anniversary, the program recognizes 25 young people from around the globe who are passionate about using the Internet to make a positive impact in their communities and the world.

Representing 19 countries on five continents, the 25 Under 25 awardees’ initiatives include creating an anti-cyberbullying youth movement in Australia, providing e-health education to teens in Tanzania, and using ICTs to break the cycle of poverty for families in Costa Rica.

Join us to be inspired in how these young people are working to #ShapeTomorrow!

P.S. The award ceremony will be recorded if you are not able to watch it live.
