Microsoft Office World Champion 2011 Opening Ceremony 

As the spirit of the competition for the youth, to make the competition more accessible to Vietnamese students nationwide, this year competition has made several changes:

Firstly, this year’s contestants are more diverse. Last year, contestants were restricted to students from universities and colleges only. This year, not only students from universities and colleges but also those from gifted and international high schools, and vocational colleges can take part in the competition.

Secondly, apart from the participation mode of school teams (10 people each team); freelance students can enter themselves for the competition. For freelance students, IIG Vietnam will sponsor 50% of the test fee and if they make it through to the National Final Round (from Round 2), they will not have to pay any more fee.

Thirdly, test category has been adjusted. Instead of 2 tests like last year, students will compete in 5 tests which include Microsoft Office Word 2007, Excel 2007, PowerPoint 2007, Word 2010, and Excel 2010.

Fourthly, to well prepare for the World Final Round, 10 candidates with the highest scores in The National Final Round in Vietnam will be teamed up for a special training plan and the 5 best members will be selected to attend The World Final Round in San Diego, California, USA from 31st July to 3rd August 2011.

Finally, prize structure of the Microsoft Office World Champion 2011 will be much more attractive and valuable as following:

         05 first prizes (for 05 tests): each prize’s value is up to about 30 million VND, comprising of 1 laptop, 1 USB D-Com 3G along with 2 million VND in user account, 5-million VND English scholarship coupon, trophy and certificate.

                05 second prizes (for 05 tests): each prize is comprised of 1 laptop, 1 USB D-Com 3G along with 2 million VND in user account, 3-million VND English scholarship coupon, trophy and certificate.

        05 first prizes (for 05 tests): each prize’s value is up to about 30 million VND, comprising of 1 laptop, 1 USB D-Com 3G along with 2 million VND in user account, 5-million VND English scholarship coupon, trophy and certificate.
