I.T. Quiz Tournament in CDO
Geeks shall rule the world!…I.T. geeks all over Mindanao has gathered for this event to compete who’s geekest of them all. This was held at SM city Cagayan de Oro, July 14 and started at 1 in the afternoon. This event was made possible by StickyMedia Solutions – a philippine outsourcing company, STI Cagayan de Oro, Cagayan de Oro Chamber of Commerce and SM City CDO with it’s web partner CDOKAY – an e-magazine website of Cagayan de Oro city.
There were 17 schools who were up for the challenge and the participating schools were: Ampayon, Agusan del Norte:Northern Mindanao State Institute of Science & Technology; Claveria, Misamis Oriental:Misamis Oriental State College of Agriculture & Technology; Cagayan de Oro City:Capitol University, Informatics Computer Institute, Liceo de Cagayan University, Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan; Davao City: University of Immaculate Conception; Iligan City: Iligan Computer Institute; Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology, St. Peter’s College; Malaybalay City: Bukidnon State University; Ozamiz City: La Salle University, Misamis University; Valencia City: AMA Computer Learning Center; Zamboanga City: Ateneo de Zamboanga University.
On the final round only 5 schools passed the preliminary and semi-final rounds to compete for the champion, 1st and 2nd places. It was indeed a nerve-wracking round for the students since it was a right minus wrong portion. They were pretty tense about it, knowing they could get a wrong answer and get deducted from their points.
And so the event came to an end, there was a new champion, Ateneo de Zamboanga!. 1st place was MSU-IIT and UIC came on 2nd.
Champion: P5,000.00 each, one computer set, Presidential trophy, plaque and iPod Shuffles from Accenture; Second Place: P3,000.00 each, one scanner, Presidential trophy, plaque and gym bags from Accenture; Third Place: P2,000.00 each, one printer, Presidential trophy, plaque and backpacks fromAccenture.
With this kind of event, it’s good to know that we have indeed promising students in Mindanao who can work for I.T. companies and excel in their chosen field. See y’all next year and get ready to be chosen for the next IT Quiz Tournament 2008.
