About the Award

Why we entered?
The Childnet Digital Leaders Programme is the perfect fit.

As young Digital Leaders have said…

“I feel that this was a perfect way to train because it was very interactive” – 13-year-old girl, London
“I feel really inspired now and want to do something myself in my community!” – 16-year-old girl, Lincolnshire
