Hollaback, Chicago Public Library and others win Knight News Challenge grants.

19 winners of the Knight News Challenge on strengthening the Internet with total awards of $3,466,000. We launched the challenge Feb. 27 with our partners Ford Foundation and Mozilla Foundation by asking the question: How can we strengthen the Internet for free expression and innovation? We saw several themes emerge in the 704 challenge entries; the nine winners of the major prizes each fit within one. The winners fall within one of three approaches to building a stronger Internet. • Access: Enabling more people to participate and create.
• Transparency: Providing a better understanding of who is doing what online.
• Safety: Building more effective tools for engaging with the Internet securely. (via 19 projects win Knight News Challenge on strengthening the Internet – Knight Foundation)
