One of the top 15 nominees, Astroact, is from Kathmandu, Nepal. We’ve learned the team is safe. We would like to offer our most sincere and heartfelt sympathies as their country was hit with a 7.8 magnitude earthquake this past weekend, one of the worst to hit in more than 80 years. Our hearts and prayers are with you. Due to the infrastructure issues and sparse connectivity in Nepal, the Astroact team is counting on votes from the international community to support their project.

Voting for the People’s Choice award began on Monday evening, April 27, 2015. You can go to the Awards page and click on the “Vote Now” button located underneath your favorite project. You can vote for as many projects as you want but only one vote per project each day. Come back every day this week!

Spread the word about your favorite projects! Voting for the semi-finalist round is only open until Friday May 1, 2015 at 11:59 pm EST. The top five People’s Choice Global Finalists will move on to the next round for another session of public voting.

We want to hear what #SpaceApps project you believe deserves a special award!
