There will also be micro:bit prizes for regional, individual, or team runners-up.

You can read the full challenge Terms & Conditions here.

How to enter

Using technology we asked young people to design and make a solution to a problem that affected them or their community or another community somewhere in the world.

This could be a device that would reduce the amount of plastic used in schools. Or a solution that encourages people to look after the trees in their community. We created resources to inspire young people based on Goals 14 and 15 but they could work towards any of the Goals.
