The Apex Challenge has been shortlisted as one of the finalists in the national ‘Technology 4 Good Awards’, which showcases the best ways charities use technology.
The South Yorkshire based team is one of just four finalists in the Innovation category – selected for the way they have used technologies such as electronic scoring, instant results, graphical simulations and the Apex smartphone app.
Technology has always been at the heart of the Apex Challenge, and over the last ten years the team has worked hard to develop innovative new solutions to make the adventure events appealing and relevant to the young people taking part.
Event Director Matt Richards says, “This is clearly a great achievement and a huge illustration of how well-regarded the Apex Challenge events have become. It’s all down to our team’s dedication, enthusiasm and months of work behind the scenes which makes the events so highly thought of.
“It’s a huge honour to be named as a finalist alongside other very worthy charities. Some of those shortlisted are huge multi-national organisations, so it’s great that the Apex Challenge is named alongside them for the innovative use of technology.”
