Hi all,

This application was very hard work, but it was worthy as it helped me
shaped the vision of an OS for-girls-only inspired in Sugar :D

Unfortunately, we didn't pass to the final round for the $100 million

Hopefully next year more volunteers can help me in the Funding Committe so
that our small community shall expand its wings!

> On behalf of the MacArthur Foundation, we want to express our sincere
> thanks to you for your interest in 100&Change, our competition for a $100
> million grant to fund a single proposal that promises real and measurable
> progress in solving a critical problem of our time.
> It is exciting to see so many creative, thoughtful, and potentially
> impactful ideas. We hope all this interest and participation, including
> yours, inspires the broader public to believe that change can really happen
> and that solutions are possible even to some of society’s most pressing
> problems.
> As outlined on the 100&Change timeline, from October 4-17 we reviewed each
> 100&Change submission to ensure that it complied with the application
> requirements and rules. All applications, including yours, went through a
> robust administrative screening process to ensure that each one met all
> requirements before advancing on to the next stage of judging.
> Your application was reviewed in a two-step screening process and was
> assessed separately by two or more individuals who ultimately concluded
> that the submitted application did not meet all eligibility criteria and
> therefore would not advance to the next round of judging. The primary
> reason your application was deemed ineligible is provided below:
> The information provided about the project budget, timeline, and/or
>> milestones lacks the detail required for judges to apply the evaluation
>> criteria.
> In many cases, our administrative reviewers identified more than one
> concern with an application; due to the high volume of applications we
> received, we regret that we are not be able to provide more detailed
> feedback.
> We certainly recognize that this news will be disappointing, but note this
> was an extremely competitive process. However, we trust that you understand
> why we are committed to applying the rules of the competition fairly to all
> applications.
> We do, however, plan to include the executive summary of your proposal in
> materials that we anticipate sharing with other funders, in the hope that
> you may find other support to make your idea a reality. As we plan to
> repeat 100&Change every three years, you may also wish to consider
> submitting a revised proposal in the next round of the competition.
> Again, we appreciate your interest in 100&Change and applaud your desire
> to help solve an important problem of our time.
> Best Regards,
