STUDENT FINAL PROJECT POSTERS ON SHOW AT THE AWARDS FUNCTION

Certiport, annually hosts a Worldwide Championship for MOS [Microsoft Office Specialist] and Adobe [Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator]. These competitions are aimed at students between 13 and 22 years who are registered at an educational institution. This year’s competition venue is Dallas, Texas. 

NetLEARN  is the organiser of the SA National Competition from which the finalists are selected to compete at the World Championships. Last year, NetLEARN sponsored 4 scholars to compete in Disneyland, California.

Below is a Promo Video of the event last year and the announcement of this years location:   

NetLEARN is extremely proud of each and every one of the students due to the high standard of creativity and design of their posters. Competition was very stiff this year and the adjudication process took much longer than expected to reach the decision of to award the top three winners in SA.

Students went through a four hour project exam of which the theme was Africa Month, and the Upskilling of our Youth – they were adjudicated on three criteria: Project Requirements, Design Skills and Technical Skills.  We invited judges from a variety of design colleges and companies to ensure fairness and to reach the ultimate decision of awarding the top three in SA. Here are some pics of the adjudication at Inscape as well as the students who took part in the project exam.

One of my MOS students [seen below] received a gift from Netlearn Update cc this morning. The gift was handed over by Jenny Cole, CEO of Netlearn who flew down to Cape Town especially for the award. Claire was one of the South African Semi-Finalists in the recent Microsoft Office Specialist Championships held at Elkanah House. She received the acknowledgement of achievement for being top in South Africa for the Microsoft Word 2010 category.  I look forward to working with her in preparation for the 2015 competition.
