Bridging the Digital Divide Between Generations


BT has announced that the second round of its BT Rangers Awards for both Schools and Individuals is now open for applications.  Through the awards, BT is looking for the most dedicated young internet teachers  as well as schools who make special efforts to help bridge the digital divide between generations in their communities. The BT Internet Rangers Student Awards scheme is looking for young people in the UK aged up to 16 years old, who have taught an older person or group basic computer and internet skills.  Through the Internet Rangers School Awards  BT will recognise the best school or group of schools that has helped older people make the most of the internet.  Through the Student Awards four national winners will each receive £100 worth of IT vouchers and an Ipad. And  one overall winner will receive an additional £100 of vouchers.  Through the Schools Award, the winning school will receive a cash prize £4,000 and two runner-up schools will each receive a cash prize of £2,500.

Applications for both Awards must be submitted by 5pm on 24th October 2011.
