The Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship is a global competition that tests students’ skills on Microsoft Office applications.

In 2015 two students will win the trip of a lifetime to represent Kenya at the final round of the Championship in Dallas, Texas from August 9th to 12th, 2015. In 2014 the Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship attracted more than 400,000 unique candidates from 130 countries who competed to demonstrate their mastery of Microsoft Office products. 123 student finalists participated in the final round of competition in Anaheim, California.

Taking Part

To participate (see the Rules and Regulations), students must first take and pass a qualifying Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exam in Word or PowerPoint (2010 or 2013) during one of the two Qualifying Rounds to be eligible for invitation to the Kenya Regional Final in May 2015.

National Qualifying Round (January 1, 2015 – May 15, 2015)

30 students from around Kenya will be chosen using the “top-score method” (highest exam score and lowest exam-taking time) in Word and PowerPoint to qualify for the Kenya Final in May 2015.

Finalists will sit a further MOS exam in their qualifying category and the two UK Champions will be determined based on these results.
