TalkTalk’s search for the nation’s Digital Heroes have short listed Miss Philbin as a finalist in the London area, who will now go head to head to win a £5,000 technology grant to help further ICT in the local community. And from today people in London are being urged to vote for their favourite Digital Hero http://www.talktalk.co.uk/digitalheroes/region.php?region=london
The TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards, in conjunction with Citizens Online, is the only awards of its kind to celebrate outstanding people who are using digital technology to benefit their local communities. Miss Philbin has been nominated for her work on a project designed to inspire working class girls into IT, Technology, Science and Engineering subject areas http://www.geekgurldiaries.co.uk Miss Philbin needs all the votes she can get to further her project, the ‘Geek Gurl Diaries’. It would be great to see the £5,000 technology grant go to a local project and help benefit our local community.
