It has been one week since we kicked off our Twitter contest asking individuals to tell us (in 140 characters or less) why aid transparency is important and we’ve gotten some fantastic responses so far! For a refresher on the contest details, click here.
On Thursday, we awarded our first round of semi-finalist winners. Congratulations to @karli_nicole and @StephPostar for their responses:
- karli_nicole: @modernizeaid we need #aidtransparency so we are humbly helping through partnership rather than inadvertently ruling by creating dependence.
- StephPostar: We need #AidTransparency to increase accountability for all involved in foreign assistance programs. Knowledge=power @ModernizeAid
We will announce the next round of semi-finalists on Thursday and our grand prize winner on Friday, June 29. Thanks to all of those who have tweeted so far—as long as you include both the designated hashtag #aidtransparency and @ModernizeAid in your response, you are eligible to win a prize. Keep the tweets coming!
