BANGALORE:Gagandeep Singh, Atif Zia and Aman Gupta from Yadavindra
School, Chandigarh, and K. Pavan, Amit Chandra and Aravind Shankar from Vidya
Mandir School, Mylapore, Chennai are going to represent India at the
International SEARCC Software Contest for Schools to be held in Auckland, New
Zealand on November 27-28, 2001.

The two teams won the annual National Software Talent Contest for Schools
co-hosted by Computer Society of India and Aptech Computer Education, held in
Chennai on October 14.



Each year, the CSI conducts a software competition where teams from schools
participate at the local, regional and national levels. The objective of this
contest is "to catch them young" and motivate them by offering the
best teams an opportunity to participate at the international level.

CSI chairman, Prof. C R Muthukrishnan said, "This year, over 300 schools
from all over India participated in the event. The local rounds took nearly
three months of hectic activity and coordination for the regional level. These
rounds were held at various Aptech centers across the country. Eleven regional
teams from 300 schools participated in the national finals."
