Win £500 for a smart idea!

Could your students design an app, a game, song or a video to help manage mobile phone costs? The PhoneBrain campaign wants to hear about their ideas for its competition, with a £500 prize up for grabs. Young people who have the inspiration and creativity to think of a way of informing their peers about the ins and outs of staying in control of paid phone services are in with a chance.

It’s really easy these days to pay for digital content such as apps and downloads straight to your phone bill or by using credit – but it’s equally easy to let the costs add up. That’s why PhoneBrain is encouraging young people to be fully aware of what to look out for, and as well as featuring a range of teaching resources, tips and guidance on its website, PhoneBrain has launched its challenge through a free competition.

There are three categories in which to enter – either through your school, your youth club or as a family – with one winner to be selected from each. Entrants must be under 16. The closing date for entries is Friday 31st January 2014, and the winners will be announced on 11th February 2014 in London as part of Safer Internet Day. Find out more information at
