Which CAT or IT learner in the Amajuba district has the most computer knowledge?

Do they attend your school?

Find out by entering your learners for the “The Cool and the IC3” competition hosted by Computer Skills for Africa.

The Top 3 learners will win an IC3 worth R5000.

Over 1000 participants in the Amajuba District of Kwa-Zulu Natal will compete for the prizes. The competition will consist of three stages, each more difficult than the last. The top 15 learners in the district will advance to the final stage.

Stage I

All CAT & IT learners at participating schools can enter. Entry is free. Entry is limited to the Amajuba district of Kwa-Zulu Natal. Full list of rules here.

This stage starts on 23 March 2012 and will finish on 22 June 2012.

Teachers will select the top 10 from each school. These learners will qualify for the next stage. Each school will receive identical test papers consisting of skills based questions.

Stage II

The top 10 from each school will attempt a knowledge based test. The learners will complete the task at their schools. The window period for finishing this will be from 16 July 2012 to 31 July 2012. Teachers will send the answer sheets to Computer Skills for Africa for grading.

Computer Skills for Africa will select the top 15 from this group.

The tasks will be harder than stage I. Learners who show a strong motivation for a career in ICT will find favour with the judges.

Stage III

The top 15 will do the final exercise at the CS4A centre at 51 Ayliff Street on 3 September 2012.

They will face questions based on elimination questions. The weakest learner from each round faces elimination from the competition. The top 3 will win an IC3 from Computer Skills for Africa.
