The top local stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom:

Students from across North America will be in Dallas this weekend to “hack” in a GOOD way. Organizers say they don’t want to destroy software or cause trouble; it’s a competition to create.

And nearly 300 women from North America were in Dallas for the United Way Women’s Leadership Summit. They’re discussing a range of topics, such as making the organization more diverse, embracing new technology, and tackling human trafficking.

You can listen to the top local news stories weekdays at 6:20 p.m. and 8:20 a.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
