DigitalYouth to Launch its First Business Skills Challenge, Presented by ICTC!

DigitalYouth to Launch its First Business Skills Challenge, Presented by ICTC!

This Business Skills Challenge is a unique opportunity for students from grades 6 to 12 to use digital skills in solving meaningful, ‘real-world’ digital challenges, as identified by industry, and win prizes!

The Challenge will be posted on Riippen.com, and school teams will work collaboratively, under their educator’s supervision, and with a mentor from ICTC, to provide a real-world solution by a pre-set deadline.

Introducing Business Skills Challenges at the middle and secondary school levels will engage students, helping them to acquire hands-on experience and develop confidence as our digital world becomes increasingly complex.

As digital technologies change the composition of employment, online Business Skills Challenges will be an innovative collaboration between businesses and education that will help students to become the next generation of entrepreneurs, creators, innovators and professionals, to build the digital and business skills they will need to succeed.

The Challenge will be posted to Riipen March 13. Students will have until March 20 to submit their solution with winners being announced in a live broadcast on March 29.

Please watch the following video on how to register with Riipen.
