We honour the talented finalists – our data ambassadors of the future. The first and the second rounds of the Applications Olympiad tests technical data skills. The final round not only tests these skills but also the ability to make sense of the data findings. Those who experience the finals also comprehend the power of computer applications. We believe this understanding contributes to their future and that of others in South Africa. Congratulations to these learners and their teachers for the hard work and perseverance that earned them this growing experience.
