Seems like Pakistani kids have decided to home all the awards and recognitions from Microsoft. Newest feather in Pakistan’s cap is Waqas Ali who recently won a bronze medal for PowerPoint 2013 at the Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship (MOSWC) 2015 held in Dallas. Ali was the only Pakistani participating in the event which was attended by 600,000 participants across the board to test their knowledge with Microsoft Office products. 145 students from 47 countries make it to the final round leading to a Bronze medal for Pakistan.
Additionally Ali was also awarded a scholarship worth $1,500, a medal, a trophy and Microsoft products.
Certiport executive Aaron Osmond said, “These winners are part of an elite group that know how to use Microsoft PowerPoint efficiently and to its full potential, “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.”
Alison Cunard, general manager of Learning Experiences at Microsoft remarked, “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,”
