We received so many incredible entries this year in the 2017 Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero competition.
If you haven't yet met our winners and finalists, you can find them here.
Our techgirls are building awesome apps to solve problems in their local community. Some apps will have more impact than others, thus we have established our inaugural Tech Girls Are Superheroes Game Changer Award for the team we feel at the Tech Girls Movement will have an extra special impact not only on the team's local community but on society as a whole.
We see the apps our tech girls build as solutions to important problems.
This year the winning team of the Game Changer award is Team Helpa who created an incredible app and business plan to connect charitable homeowners to the homeless population. The team is from St. Aidan's Anglican Girls School in Brisbane.
Their app allows the homeless to work in partnership with the community so stereotypes are broken and friendships built. People will outsource tasks directly to local homeless clients allowing a mutually beneficial situation. Users can negotiate their own rates of payment or exchange. This is a healthy way for the homeless to reconnect with society whilst productively putting their skills and hobbies to use. To create revenue, the team will sell merchandise, collect donations and show advertising.
Most of all, these girls want to make a change, one phone at a time.
I'm sure you will agree that this team of girls has set the standard very high with their concept, their app and the research behind it. We are sure you will agree that they are very worthy recipients of our very first Tech Girls Are Superheroes Game Changer App!
