Inspire IT Challenge

The Event

We are delighted to pilot a new challenge in the 2017/18 academic year.
Sponsored by Prolinx, the challenge is for Level 2 IT students. Working in teams of two, students are asked to come up with a concept for a new app. They are not expected to actually create the app, but come up with a concept and design, and present it to a team of judges.

Each team will have 10 minutes to pitch their idea to a panel of judges, who will represent Prolinx, the Challenge sponsor, QA and Inspire Young People. There will then be 5 minutes for the judges to ask questions. The competition is being tested with students at City of Bristol College, and the presentations will take place in March 2018.

Judging Criteria

Teams will be judged against a number of criteria, including;

  1. The entrepreneurial vision
  2. Design
  3. User flow
  4. Monetization strategy
  5. Generated Revenue and Scale
  6. Security considerations


Everyone who enters will receive a certificate to recognise their achievement.
One team will be selected as the winners, and will be announced at the end of the day.

The winning team will each win an iPad, courtesy of Prolinx, and also a trophy.
