Winners’ Circle

The Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council launched ‘Digital Youth’ earlier this year as a new innovative programme that will encourage and cultivate a digital enterprise culture in the region and enable over 600 students from 12 secondary schools to develop a stronger foundation in digital skills. ‘Digital Youth’ will improve students’ knowledge and understanding of digital technology and widen their career prospects beyond traditional sectors.

During each session students are tasked with a digital challenge to design an app aimed at tackling issues within the Borough. The groups pitch their app idea to a panel of Digital Ambassadors who decide on an overall winner!
