Last year we introduced the T4G Youth Award, which is now known as the Young People’s Award. The category is designed to showcase the way young people are using technology to help make the world a better place – whether that be an individual or a group, through a project based in school, college or University, or a charity or social enterprise that is really taking off.
Last year the T4G Youth Award was won by Insight, a team from Mexborough School in Doncaster who designed an app to help blind and partially-sighted people find their way around using local landmarks. Not only did they win the Award, they also won an investment of £5,000 thanks to their outstanding business plan.
Do you know someone that’s under-23 years of age, and is using technology within their community to solve a problem? Do you volunteer or work within an organisation that is using computers and the internet to improve the lives of others? Do you have a relative that’s delivering an innovate and inspiring product or service? It could be an app, a website, a new gadget or any kind of digital technology that has been created by young people to help improve the lives of others.
Nominations are open until May 6th, so please let us know who you think comes under this category that you think should receive an Award in this year’s Tech4Good Awards. Click here to nominate in the Young People’s Award category – and remember, you can nominate yourself, an organisation you volunteer or work within, or someone else for this Award.
