USAID and Humanity United’s *Tech Challenge for Atrocity Prevention*website,
www.thetechchallenge.org, has gone live today. The website identifies five
specific challenges around atrocity prevention, the first two of which will
launch on October 31st.  We’re grateful for the support of everyone who
helped us craft these problem statements, paving the way for us to solicit
exciting and innovative ideas.

In supporting President Obama’s vision of preventing atrocities worldwide, the
*Tech Challenge for Atrocity Prevention* encourages individuals from all
backgrounds to bring new perspectives to some of the most daunting issues
in this arena.  We are looking for those who can contribute innovative tech
tools and solutions -- big and small -- to make real advances in preventing
atrocities.

Humanity United and USAID will award prizes as large as $10,000 per
challenge for creative ideas and prototypes that respond to the problem
statements.  We hope that new or existing solutions in fields such as
global health, education, and the private sector can be transformative when
applied to preventing atrocities.

*We need your help in spreading the word about this challenge!  *Please
share the website <http://thetechchallenge.org/>and the short
video<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tGo867Qs2g>as far and wide as
you can on your social media networks and particularly
to your networks of dedicated and passionate activists, techies and
innovators.

Thank you for your support,

Donald Steinberg
Deputy Administrator
USAID
