IPv4.Global, an operating unit of Hilco Streambank, recently announced the finalists for the next installment of their IPv4.Global Good Netizen Awards (GNAs). These awards, coinciding with the San Francisco, CA meeting of NANOG 75, which takes place February 18-20, 2019, honors three organizations serving the local San Francisco community: ShelterTech, The Linux Foundation and Girls in Tech.

IPv4.Global, the leading IPv4 address broker serving clients in every region, developed the Good Netizen Awards to recognize and celebrate organizations across the U.S. that are promoting or demonstrating exceptional “netizenship” throughout their community. For IPv4.Global, great netizenship can take many forms, including engagement in the encouragement of internet access for all, supporting and funding internet and technology education or contributing to open and ethical internet business practices.

Good Netizen Awards winners are selected via an online vote, which opened on Tuesday, February 12 and will conclude on Sunday, February 24. The winning organization and runner-up will receive contributions in the amount of one percent of the IPv4 online auction platform’s gross sales from March 4 through March 10. The award will be divided proportionately according to the number of votes each finalist organization receives.

The finalists chosen for the San Francisco awards represent a range of charitable, beneficial and truly constructive contributions to the online and technological world.
