The Microsoft Office Specialist World Championship

30 April 2018

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) World Championship, which is presented by Certiport Inc., is a global competition that tests students’ skills on Microsoft Office Word and Excel (2013 or 2016). Top students from different schools around the world are invited to participate in a national championship as representatives of their schools, and the winners of that competition continue to participate in the World Championship. On April 10- 11, thirty-six students from grades 8, 10 and 11 (French, English and IP sections) participated in this in-school competition. Consequently, Maya loutfi and Zouheir Nakouzi, who revealed brilliance in Microsoft offices, were selected to represent their school HHHS in the National Championship in Beirut on Wednesday, 18th of April. In fact, Maya and Zouheir were enthusiastic to share their reflections on this remarkable experience with the school community.

“Being a 21st-century student requires knowledge in several fields, but most importantly, it necessitates competence in the technological field. Now that Microsoft is a vital tool in our daily lives, I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity of being part of the renowned competition that has assessed my skills in Microsoft Word and Excel. Since my grade surpassed the average of the other candidates in my school in Word, I reached the final round on the national level and thus get certified as a Microsoft office specialist. Going to the Microsoft office in Beirut and attending the last round of the competition inspired me to become a member of this association one day! Now, the expert certification is what I wish to focus on and go to the next step. Finally yet importantly, I urge all learners of my generation to take part in this program because it makes them aware of all the details found in Microsoft office programs. Though someone does not wish to specialize in the IT field, he/she has to use Microsoft office Word and Excel on a daily basis since they serve as the essential foundation of the computing world.” ~ Maya Loutfi

“The MOS competition was a great experience! It showed me the hidden features of Word and Excel. Now I know how to use Word and Excel appropriately and quite easily. I encourage everyone who loves using a computer to join this competition. It was definitely worth it, and I would like to participate again.”~ Zouheir Nakouzi
