At this year’s reinvigorated Apps for Good Awards student teams from schools across the United Kingdom will be showcasing their innovative apps and Internet of Things products in a bid to win their category prize and your vote in the ‘People’s Choice Award’. Voting in the People’s Choice also goes live online on 4th June so sign up to our Thunderclap and spread the word about your favourite team!
The Apps for Good Awards celebrate today’s young tech entrepreneurs; young people selected from students across the United Kingdom who have created a technology product which tackles a problem or issue they care about. Over 27,000 students between the ages of 11 and 18 have completed an Apps for Good course. This year, for the first time, we will be inviting some of our Fellows to come and repitch their product in the brand new Legacy Category.
Agenda for the evening:
17:30-19:15: The Marketplace is the chance for you to meet all 15 finalist teams, ask questions, give advice & vote for your favourite
19:15-20:00: Awards handed out as the winners of each category & ‘People’s Choice’ are announced
The categories for prizes this year are across different age groups:
For the under 13s: Digital Explorers
For the 13-16s: Rising Stars
For the 16+: Future Tech Leaders
The Internet of Things: Emerging Technology
For the past students: The Legacy Award
The favourite idea as chosen by you: People’s Choice Award
This year’s Awards are made possible by the generous support of Thomson Reuters, SAP, LEGO, Spotify, Virgin Red, GoDaddy, EPAM and Capgemini.
We look forward to seeing you there for some drinks, nibbles and a lot of inspiration! The event is relaxed and informal with no dress code, just come ready to be wowed by the passion and energy of the young people sharing their work.
