An annual celebration of young innovators from across the UK

About the Apps for Good Awards

Every year we hold an awards celebration where we recognise our top student teams from across the UK. The Awards are an amazing opportunity for our community to get together and celebrate some of the solutions that our students have designed during our courses.

Finalists are young innovators who've come together in teams to use apps, Internet of Things or machine learning to solve a problem that matters to them.

To celebrate the wide range of achievements of our students, we have multiple award categories, which we deliver together with our our partners.
