Help us create a fitter, healthier and happier future for Scotland's young people

#DigiInventorsChallenge 2018

In association with Andy Murray and the Digital Health & Care Institute - Innovating for a fitter, healthier and happier, future for Scotland’s young people.

The internet, smart technology and social media have transformed our lives, with each now having a huge influence on the way we learn, work, play and communicate.

The digital age is certainly here - but what does this mean for our health? And how do we stay fit and well as our world moves increasingly online?

What is the #DigiInventorsChallenge

The #DigiInventorsChallenge, in association with Andy Murray and the Digital Health & Care Institute is on a mission to find smart new ways to help Scotland’s young people keep active, eat well and stay healthy and happy, now and in the future. 

This is where you come in!

We want you to play a part in helping reverse the trends that have led to young Scots being rated as having one of the worst diets and lowest activity levels in the world. With your help, we can change the habits that are setting Scotland up for a lifetime of ill health.

 

Great prizes up for grabs!

The #DigiInventorsChallenge 2018 offers an incredible prize package!

Each member of all shortlisted teams will receive a fantastic personal technology prize (last years received Apple Watches!)

The winning team will also receive more cool tech for each team member and £2,000 for their school, club or organisation.

The runner up team will also received £500 for their school, club or organisation.

''As a professional tennis player, I use digital health technology every day to monitor my performance and inform my training regime. But digital health technology is not just for athletes. It has the potential to help everyone understand their health needs and goals better, and make better choices. By taking part in the #DigiInventorsChallenge we want you to use your experiences, your creativity and your digital skills to develop one big idea that you know will make a difference to you and your classmates.”
