Following the success of the first edition of the ICDL Asia Digital Challenge competition in 2017, the latest edition of ICDL Asia’s search for the students with the best ICT skills in Asia has expanded to run in 11 countries or territories across the continent.

In 2017, close to 3,700 students from 106 schools in 7 countries took part in the Digital Challenge. So far in the 2018 edition, over 6,200 students have taken part, including from Singapore. In 2017, the competition was open to tertiary-level students only, but for this year’s edition, secondary school students are also able to take part.

In Singapore, ICDL Asia and local partners approached secondary schools and tertiary level institutions to create awareness of the importance of digital literacy in today’s society. With the support of schools, more than 1,000 students from Singapore participated in the Digital Challenge.

A National Round of the competition will take place in Singapore in July to find the top two students from secondary schools and tertiary institutes respectively. They will go on to represent Singapore in competition against students from other countries and territories in Asia.
