Clevertouch was recently featured in The Irish News with football legend Peter Canavan, who is working with NIAVAC to help promote the use of technology in sport.

Canavan hopes to inspire the next generation of sports analysts following the announcement of NIAVAC’s innovative competition for primary and secondary school children, entitled Best Young Sports Analyst Award, with the winners’ school receiving a70-inch state-of-the-art Clevertouch interactive, worth £4,000. “Everybody likes to talk a good game,” said Canavan. “So we’re going to put people on the spot. If any pupils fancy themselves as an analyst in their sport they will get the chance to submit a two-minute piece where they analyse a game of their choice that they played in, whether it’s Gaelic, soccer, rugby or hockey or hurling. “They can do it as an individual or as a group and we’ll see how well they can summarise it. They can use video technology, they can use clips from the game and present the stats in whatever form they like and they can tell the story of the game.”

James Conlon, managing director of NIAVAC, said: “We are delighted to launch a schools competition and to have Peter Canavan on board as our brand ambassador. Clevertouch technology is really revolutionising classroom learning, replacing interactive whiteboards in classrooms with sophisticated touchscreen technology that does not require costly replacement lamps and ongoing maintenance.”

Competition entries are now open and must be submitted by March 31. Five finalists will be selected to go through to the final round with the winner selected by a public
vote. For further details check the competition webpage.
