Hong Kong Outstanding IT-School Award 2010

Organized by the Hong Kong Joint School Electronics and Computer Society


Contest Guidelines


It has been a tradition for HKJSECS to organize the Outstanding IT Student Award so as to help students explore their potential in the IT aspect. Since the 29th year of JSECS, the IT Student Award has been changed to the IT School Award. This is to encourage students to form teams and achieve more with each others’ help and to promote IT culture in schools as a whole. To meet the growing global trend of environmental friendliness, HKJSECS has adopted “Greenovation in the IT Century” as the theme for this year. “Greenovation” is the combination of “Green” and “Innovation”. Through this competition, we hope that students could be encouraged to apply computer science in daily lives and live greenly. In addition, students are provided with opportunities to help develop Information Technology Industry with eco-awareness.


  • To enrich students’ knowledge in IT
  • To arouse students’ awareness on impacts of electronic wastes and importance of environmental protection in IT industry
  • To promote applications of computer science in daily lives with environmentally friendly methods
