TechGirl 2022

29th September 2022

Are you a 16-18 year old girl that wants to change the world?


Want to be mentored by one of the UK’s most influential female technology leaders?


Want to kickstart your career in tech?


Enter TechGirl 2022 and you will have the chance to do all three!


We want girls to submit their ideas on how technology can be used to improve schools and education. We welcome creative thought in how you state the problem and show how you think technology can be used to solve that problem.


Perhaps learning from home over the last couple of years has highlighted an opportunity for technology to help connect students and teachers? Maybe technology can help  equalise the experience of students with different learning capabilities? Or is there a smart way with technology you've noticed that could make your school more sustainable?


You can submit a written Word document describing your idea, or you can submit a recorded video file with you explaining on camera your idea, or an audio-only file. Use whatever medium you feel most comfortable using. Please see the rules below to make sure your submission falls within the guidelines.


The Prize

The winners will be invited to Tottenham Hotspurs Football Stadium, in London, on October 18th, where they will have the opportunity to discuss their ideas alongside technology leaders who are  coming together to discuss some of the most important challenges facing society today. 


Winners will then be partnered with and introduced to one of the competition's official Mentors, who will be on hand to offer career advice, partake in a recorded interview with winners—after training for winners from a top TV Presenter on the day— and in the future secure work experience for each winner to help them kickstart their career in technology.


Mentors for 2022 are:

  • Charlotte Baldwin, Global CIO, Costa Coffee;
  • Deborah Haworth, Director of Information Security, Penguin Random House UK;
  • Jacqui Lipinski, CIO, Royal College of Art;
  • Belinda Finch, CIO, Three UK;
  • Christina Scott, CPO & CTO, OVO Energy.
