New Horizons sponsors students to Microsoft competition
NEW Horizons Nigeria will be sponsoring two students from its Partner Schools, Doregos Private Academy and Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls plus a school teacher as chaperon to the 2015 Certiport Microsoft Specialist and Adobe Certified Associate competition taking place in Texas USA.
The students are Miss Aisha Toki of Doregos Private Academy, who emerged the national winner of Adobe Certified Associate Photoshop Competition and Miss Afopefoluwa Laja of Vivian Fowler Memorial College for Girls, national winner of Microsoft Office Word Specialist Competition.
The two of them emerged winners after very rigorous competition held at New Horizons Centre Lagos in June this year, where they sat for real time on line test in various aspects of ICT. New Horizons will pick all the bills on behalf of the two kids and one chaperon for this competition.
They are to represent their schools and Nigeria in the Worldwide Championship in Dallas Texas, USA where they will be competing with other National champions from 90 countries with a total of 400,000 participants in Europe, America and Asia from August 9th – 12th, 2015.
This will be the fifth year in a row that New Horizons will be sponsoring Nigerian kids to feature in this most important global ICT competition. New Horizons for the past ten years have been at the forefront of repositioning Nigeria through the instrumentality of ICT, with the chief aim of making Nigeria become an ICT export nation as against being a consumer nation that she is presently.
