#DigiInventorsChallenge

In association with Andy Murray and the Digital Health & Care Institute

#DigiInventorsChallenge

We've teamed up with our ambassador Andy Murray, to get Scotland's young people innovating for a fitter, healthier and happier, future for Scotland.

''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.”

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?

About 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.

Who is it for?


The competition is open to teams from any School or youth organisation. Each team must appoint an adult to act as a mentor/supervisor. Participants must be aged 11 - 18 at the point of entry submission (5th May 2017). Mentors must be aged 21 or over.


What does it involve?


In teams of four to six, supported by at least one adult mentor, we want applicants to develop an idea that will help young people participate in the active management of their health, fitness and wellbeing, using digital technology.

 

What does the challenge aim to achieve?

 

We want you to play a part in helping reverse the trends that have led to young people 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.

 

What are the prizes?

The #DigiInventorsChallenge offers an incredible prize package!

Each member of all shortlisted teams will receive an Apple Watch.

The overall winning team will also receive Apple iPads for each team member plus £2,000 for their school, college or club and the chance to meet Andy himself.

The winning team will also see their idea developed through the Digital Health & Care Institute.
