Pupils’ app lands prize

PUPILS from a West Lothian school have secured third place in a national competition, and won £500 in the process.

Youngsters from Broxburn Academy gave a Dragons’ Den-type pitch to expert judges at the Natural History Museum in London last week.

Matthew Devlin, Bronwyn Dickson, Liam Rintoul, Catriona Salvini, Sarah Devlin and Lucy Finlayson – or Team Broxburn – designed an app for the 2012 Olympic Games that gives visitors with a disability greater access to the games.
