Certiport today named Kankawin Kowsrihawat, 17, from Thailand this year’s World Champion in Word 2007 for culmination of the most prolific competition on Microsoft® Office to date. In its eighth year, the 2009 Worldwide Competition on Microsoft Office boasts more than 80,000 student competitors hailing from 53 countries who participated in rounds of local, country and regional competitions—capped by the Championship Round in Toronto, Canada.
“After I heard I was the winner, I was very glad,” said Kankawin Kowsrihawat. Once graduated from high school, he plans to continue his education where he will study computer science.
Certiport recognized Kankawin Kowsrihawat in ceremonies at the Certiport PATHWAYS™ 2009 conference in Toronto where 55 country winners competed in the Championship Round for a grand-prize scholarship fund of $6,500 USD.
The Worldwide Competition on Microsoft Office has grown steadily since its inauguration in 2002 as a regional event in Asia. All told, more than 250,000 students from all over the world have competed for the coveted title of “World Champ” in its eight-year history. Participants for the Championship Round of the Competition are chosen based on exam scores and completion times.
