BT Internet Rangers is an exciting award scheme which aims to reward schools that are working with their community to help older people get online and improve their IT skills.
There is a prize of £4,000 for the winning secondary school, £3,000 for the winning primary/middle school and two runners up prizes of £2,500.
There is also a Teacher’s Award of £250 worth of IT vouchers for the teachers who submit the applications for each of the winning schools.
To apply for an award the school must be planning to run IT activities that take place or start before the end of the 2012/13 school year. For example, activities such as a silver surfers week during half term or IT evening classes held during term time run by the children for the wider community.
The students themselves maybe eligible to apply for the BT Internet Ranger of the Year Award which gives them a chance to win an iPad or laptop.
The application process for both awards is completed online and they can be accessed at www.bt.com/internetrangersalong with the terms and conditions of both competitions.
