BT adds e-ffective Connection Award to Community Connections

BT adds e-ffective Connection Award to Community Connections

In addition to offering Internet-ready PCs to community groups, BT Community Connections has now launched the e-ffective Connection Award to offer further IT equipment to past recipients.

The BT Community Connections scheme has awarded more than 3,800 Internet-ready PCs to voluntary groups throughout the country. Now in its third year it is investing a further £1.3 million and has announced its e-ffective Connection Award.

This is open to past winners of a BT Community Connections Award who can apply for IT equipment that is awarded as an enhanced package to supplement the Internet-ready PC previously received.

The new award recognises groups’ innovative, inclusive and resourceful utilisation of the Internet to the benefit of the local community. Applications are judged in four separate categories including 1) Community Integration; 2) Digital Inclusion; 3) Innovation and 4) WebMax, which rewards organisations that maximise exposure to the Internet by encouraging a large number of individuals to use the Internet-ready PC.

Round Two of this year’s awards is now open, with an additional seven hundred awards offered for both levels. The closing date for postal applications is 25 November 2004 and 2 December 2004 for online applications. Applicants must demonstrate how they would use the Internet in an innovative way to the benefit of the wider community.
