The 10 Future Makers Awards Finalists!

During Europe Code Week 2016, the Future Makers Awards invited youngsters between 10-17 years old to ‘make the future’ and use their coding superpowers to bring about a positive social impact and change in their communities.

The response and quality of projects we received from young people around the world was amazing! Well done to all who entered! We received applications from 13 countries including: Belgium, Bulgaria, Cameroon, China , Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Romania, Turkey, Uganda, USA and UK.

The projects were judged on their technological & coding complexity, their positive social impact and how innovative they are. After going through all the entries we are delighted to announce, in no particular order, the 10 finalists are:

  • Lili Názer with her App, Daily Take Me
