Following my initial blog entry I am quite keen on a Digital Technologies cup.
If we go down the cup idea I am thinking of something like the “IITP Ada Lovelace cup” for excellence in Digital Technologies Year 13. The name suits an all girls school but no doubt other schools would select a name that fits with their culture/gender composition. i.e. name after some other iconic people related to the history of computing that has some relevancy to their school.
This idea is reasonably scalable once the initial cup is purchased and can be augmented with other prizes such as the Code Avengers and/or IITP student membership etc.
Regarding vendor prizes, these may be appropriate IF there are no hooks such as having to use a specific type of hardware, software or service.
