New Awards offer young entrepreneurs a chance to win £5,000

The Technology4Good Youth Awards reward young people who use technology to make the world a better place. Entries close on 30 November so there are just under 4 weeks left for young entrepreneurs to submit their ideas. Nine finalists will take part in a Dragon's Den-style event at Windsor castle, with a chance to win £5,000.

AbilityNet and Groundwork have teamed up with BT to create the Technology4Good Youth Awards, a chance to celebrate the talents of young people from across the UK. We're looking for groups of young people - aged between 14 and 21 -  to send us their ideas for how technology can help make the world a better place. That could be an app for their local community, energy-saving ideas to cut carbon emissions or new ways for using mobile phones to make our communities safer.
