Stu­dents ’appy with dig­i­tal win

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

DIG­I­TAL stu­dents from West Lan­cashire Col­lege have been cel­e­brat­ing af­ter they be­came over­all win­ners of the Dig­i­tal Ad­van­tage com­pe­ti­tion, run by the Pop Up Dig­i­tal Agency, for their car share app for fes­ti­val go­ers.

The stu­dents have been work­ing with Skid­dle – a web­site that sells tick­ets for events, fes­ti­vals, gigs and clubs – which fully en­dorsed the app fol­low­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion of their busi­ness plan.

Skid­dle manag­ing di­rec­tor Jamie Sc­ahill said: “I am so im­pressed by the stu­dents’ idea, work and en­thu­si­asm.

“I will gladly back the ideas they have for their app – it’s a bril­liant idea.”

The stu­dents com­peted with nine other schools and col­leges pre­sent­ing their idea to a panel of judges at County Hall in Pre­ston.

They won with a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion from the judges.

As well as the winning ti­tle, stu­dents took away £2,000 to fur­ther de­velop their app.

Course tu­tor An­ju­man Robinson said: “I am ex­tremely proud of this fan­tas­tic achieve­ment and the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion the stu­dents have shown to this project and I am over the moon with the fi­nal re­sult.

“I very much look for­ward to work­ing with the stu­dents to fur­ther de­velop their in­no­va­tive app.

“Well done to all in­volved - watch this space for the launch of WLC car share app!”
