Win up to £10,000 in the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards
The search is on for this year’s TalkTalk Digital Heroes, and there are awards of up to £10,000 for individuals and groups who use digital technology to help their communities.
TalkTalk, the communications company, is running the awards for the fifth year and has already helped 49 projects across Britain, including various charities which have used technology to help children and youth, the homeless and people with disabilities.
The awards, run in partnership with the Daily Mirror and charities Citizens Online and Go ON UK, aim to recognise inspirational people who use technology to benefit their local community. Twelve winners, one from each region of the UK – voted for by the public – will each get £5,000 to enhance their digital projects, with one overall winner getting £10,000.
This year there is a new category for children and young people aged 18 years and under, with the winner receiving an Apple MacBook Air and £4,000 for their chosen charity, and a drawing competition for younger children to design their own Digital Hero with an Apple iPad as top prize.
