A Competitive Edge
The annual Awards competition in June of each year gives students a chance to be recognised for outstanding work.
Apps for Good is not just about tech, it’s about confidence. I have a better attitude to my ideas now, and I'm much better at talking in front of people. I was really shy when I started, I'm much more likely now to give things a go and see what happens.”
