The DuckDuckGo community is growing every day, with contributors coming from all corners of the globe to participate. Some members go above and beyond to make a noticeable and lasting impact. When that happens, we award those amazing contributors with leadership positions and, this month, we'd like to announce two new leaders:
- Sebastián Sorribas (https://twitter.com/sebasorribas) has been managing forum discussions on https://duck.co/forum and he'll be working to help educate others on DuckDuckGo and DuckDuckHack.
- Nick Calabro (https://twitter.com/nickcalabs) planned and led the New York developer event at the beginning of April and will be helping to kick off our meetup program so that anyone can do the same! If you're in NYC, join our new meetup group! http://www.meetup.com/Quack-Hack-New-York-City/

From the DuckDuckHack community come more useful Instant Answers! These three are particularly impressive:

- Need something to do?: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=events+near+me&ia=localevents (created by https://getevents.co/)
- Want to find out home values around you?: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=one+bedroom+house+90210&ia=homevalues (created by https://www.quandl.com)
