The Hong Kong Outstanding IT School Award is one of the most highlighted projects organized by HKJSECS every year. Every year, we are able to attract student teams from different schools to compete and share their creative ideas with each other. Following last year’s great success, the 35th HKJSECS is going to organize HKOITSA 2014, continuing to provide a platform for students to show-off their talents and enrich their knowledge in IT.
The Award aims at helping students to stimulate their potential in the IT aspect, applying their skills and knowledge attained from their daily life and exposure to various technologies. Participants are required to develop a product, a prototype of their invention, or a detailed presentation of their ideas. The competition will be divided into 3 sections and it will lasts for approximately 6 months.
The theme of this year’s HKOITSA is “IT – Makes Life Easier”. Participants should aim to develop a product or an idea to make our lives easier. The theme directly challenges participant’s awareness of their daily lives; an extensive and holistic insight into our surroundings is necessary to discover new ways of making our lives more convenient. Echoing with our year theme, we hope that the award can encourage participants to think out of the box and strive to achieve the unthinkable.
