Office Championship winners 2017 – the full list

The Microsoft Office Championships are done for 2017 with talented young people from all over the planet among the winners.  We have the full list of winners.

The competition is for students 13-22 years with categories for Word, Excel and PowerPoint in 2013 or 2016 versions.  Outlook, Access, Visio and Publisher don’t get a spot.

For the first time, an American has taken first place in a category.  Other first place getters are from Romania, Hong Kong, Guatemala and China which gives you a good idea how truly global this competition is.

Alas, the list doesn’t have enough women.  Special kudos to Katherine Eta from Lagos, Nigeria who not only came third in the Word 2016 category but shows us the era of the large novelty check isn’t gone <g>.
