Inspiration is the be-all and end-all
For twenty-five years, SWITCH has been passionately pushing the world of the Internet, and now we want to instil this same enthusiasm in the younger generation too. SWITCH's Junior Web Award gives school classes the opportunity to create their own website and to have it placed in the Internet free-of-charge. In addition to this, we run a Community Portal, where anyone belonging to the SWITCH community can meet around a virtual table in a protected corner of the web.more information
