Every year, the .cat Foundation organises wapps .cat, the contest for the creation of websites and apps in Catalan aimed at students of 5th- and 6th-grade primary school, secondary and higher education, as well as intermediate and upper vocational training. This year, the contest is in its 10th year and it’s celebrating in a very special way.
