awarded the top prize in the nation within the field of ICTs. The Young ICT Explorers competition was created to encourage students to create their best Information Communication Technology (ICT) related projects. This year there were seven regional events held, showcasing 371 projects by 874 students from 119 schools across Australia. The three boys entered the Year 9 and 10 division in Townsville with their “School Administration System” project which aims to streamline the way information is passed between students and teachers online; from timetables, to homework to assessment marks and more. After winning their age division in Townsville, John, Jake and Ryan were invited to attend the national finals in Sydney over the past weekend. Here winners from all over Australia showcased their products and pres
ented to judges. The creativity and talent demonstrated by these young people was outstanding to witness and the competition was fierce. John, Jake and Ryan wowed the judges during the presentation of their product and were awarded first prize in their age division. A big congratulations to these boys who not only showed technical skill but great business sense and team work. Watch this space, we may be using their School Administration System in the future.
