Dunoon Grammar School have two teams shortlisted for the people’s choice award at this year’s Apps for Good UK finals.
The Apps for Good Awards are an annual competition to showcase some of the best apps created by student teams. Over 25,000 young people from 1250 establishments have participated this year – so it is a real honour to have two teams at this year’s awards.
