ICT - Search for internet rangers

10th September 2010 at 01:00

Prizes are on offer for young internet experts who have helped their less computer-literate elders navigate the web.

The BT Internet Ranger of the Year Awards are open to anyone aged up to 16 who has taught an older person or group of older people basic computer skills and how to use the internet.

There is a category for individuals and another for schools or groups of schools, in which the winner receives pound;4,000 and two runners-up each get pound;2,500.

Last year's Scottish individual winner was 12-year-old Jake Leitch from Kirkcaldy, a pupil at St Andrew's High. Jake taught his mum IT skills that helped her regain vocabulary she had lost after suffering a stroke, and to connect online with people in similar situations.
