Mini Youth Games DigiLeaders

This new programme uses the excitement of the Mini Youth Games to develop and inspire young DigiLeaders across Medway’s primary schools.

The project brings a team of Year 4, 5, and 6 pupils to document their school’s involvement in the games through new technologies.

Each participating school can send 12 pupils to our annual DigiLeaders' conference day at the start of the academic year. This event will give them knowledge ready for Mini Youth Games event-day workshops and in-school media activities.

On MYG event days, four DigiLeaders per school get to attend one of three full-day workshops and use their knowledge at a live sporting event.

Each event day will have a focus on one of three aspects of digital leadership – reporting, photography and social media. 

Leaders have access to iPads and dedicated MYG DigiLeaders Twitter, Instagram and Periscope accounts. The leaders are then set a challenge that they need to undertake back in school.

The charge for a school to participate in the Mini Youth Games DigiLeaders Programme is £250 per school for the academic year.
