See below for an overview of the judging criteria and how to help students prepare their awards entry. See the key dates on the awards overview page.
We are looking for solutions that demonstrate innovative thinking and stand out from the rest. Finalists and winners are selected by our judges from the industry.
Judges are looking for an innovative and thoroughly developed solution addressing a clearly defined and researched problem.
Judges are looking for thoughtful and user-centered features and an excellent working prototype.
Judges are looking for projects that are professionally presented and clear throughout.
For your students to succeed in the Awards they will need to both meet our judging criteria and present an entry that stands out from the many we receive each year.
To help you support students, we will be providing resources for you to use in your sessions. These resources will be available by early February.
You should also familiarise yourself with the competition rules:
Students need to submit their entry on the student awards page. You'll be sent an email when a team enters, confirming their submission.
To reward your students for entering and for their great work, you can print out and fill in an Apps for Good certificate (below). You'll be emailed the links when your students submit their projects.
