Code Make Win- the launch of Sheffield’s Digital competition for 9-19 year olds

23 Nov

CODEMAKEWIN is making an exciting return for 2016.

The competition, run by Sheffield City Council, sets out to discover the city’s hidden digital makers! After a successful pilot which unearthed and encouraged over 40 young digital makers from around the city the competition is starting again.

Open to three age groups (9-11, 12-16,17-19), the competition runs from the 16th of November to the 31st of May 2016 and is open to working products, prototypes, or new ideas in the categories of software apps, physical computing, and digital manufacturing.

Firstly, we are merely looking for IDEAS that young people have for new digital products, such as a new App. ‘Early Bird Ideas’ entries are now open until 15th January, students can simply submit their ideas and five will receive a £50 prize.

Next we are looking for students to develop these ideas into coded digital products and they have until 31st May 2016 to submit these.

Up to 9 prizes of £75 are available, plus a special Raspberry Pi prize. All winners will be invited to our spectacular awards ceremony in July 2016 where there will be the chance to meet games designers and others from the industry!

We have prepared a PowerPoint which you can use to promote/launch the competition Information for Schools page.

Further details on categories, information on how to enter, deadline dates, and T&Cs can be found on the CODE>MAKE>WIN website ( The website also offers online PDF versions of our posters and information flyers which can be sent to students, and these are also available in printed format upon request.
