18 September 2015

DALLAS: A Malaysian student, 16-year-old Admon Lee Wen Xuan, has been named Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 World Champion. He beat out 600,000 competitors worldwide.

Since its inception in 2002, Microsoft Office Specialist World Champion in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 is all about culminating the most popular technology skills competition on Microsoft Office.



The 2015 Microsoft Office Specialist World Champions in PowerPoint 2010 are:

First place, Admon Lee Wen Xuan, Malaysia

Second place, Kong Divin, Cambodia

Third place, Nguyen Thi Hien Gia, Vietnam

Certiport (www.certiport.com), a Pearson VUE business, the leading test delivery solution provider for the global workforce and academic markets recognized the top Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 competitors at the Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship Student Awards Ceremony at the Gaylord Texan Grapevine Resort in Dallas, Texas and presented the first, second and third place winners with scholarship money (US$5,000, US$2,500, and US$1,000 respectively), a medal, a trophy and Microsoft products.

"More than 1.2 billion people use Office worldwide, and these students have taken the time to set themselves apart as the best of the best,” said Alison Cunard, general manager of Learning Experiences at Microsoft.

"Earning a Microsoft Office Specialist certification has already provided proof that they have the necessary skills to succeed in academics and the workforce. Winning the World Championship puts them in a class of their own, and we look forward to seeing how they put their Microsoft Office skills to use in the future."

In the concluding round, competitors participated in unique project-based tests to demonstrate their ability to create presentations in PowerPoint.

"These winners are part of an elite group that know how to use Microsoft PowerPoint efficiently and to its full potential,” said Aaron Osmond, vice president of the global Certiport offering for Pearson VUE.

“We are proud to support this competition as a vehicle to promote what the world needs most – young people who possess in-demand workforce skills.”
