The 4th annual Make IT Happy competition, with a theme of “Get your community online”, is run by the Parliamentary IT Committee and e-skills UK.

It is open to primary schools who have run an innovative, community focused IT project created by 9-11 year olds. You can enter a project your school is already involved in or has been involved in recently, or start a new project specifically for the Make IT Happy competition. Oh, and there are cash prizes for the winning schools at regional and national level.

The nice thing about this competition is that it doesn’t involve filling out lots of forms, but instead the pupils create the entry:

The presentation of the entry itself should be pupil led and show creative and innovative use of technology. You could present your entry using:

• A podcast
• A video
• Animation
• A radio show
• A website
• A radio ad
