Arriving soon: The Apps for Good Annual Awards 2019

The Apps for Good team and our corporate shortlisting partners have had an intensely exciting period assessing hundreds of  entries from schools and colleges across the UK. This year we have welcomed entries from as far afield as the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Hebrides and have been blown away by the ingenuity, creativity and professionalism of all of the entries. Thanks to the pioneering work of our Senior Learning Manager, Donna, we remain at the forefront of technology education and are overjoyed to be welcoming Machine Learning entries for the first time at our 2019 Awards.
We are thrilled to announce that the following teams have progressed to the finals and will be joining us in London on the 18th of June to pitch their ideas. Check out the incredible entries and team videos below and have your say on your favourite by voting in the People’s Choice Award.
