Children Are Being Encouraged To Enter The I-Squared Competition

The National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (NTRC) is appealing to parents throughout St. Vincent and the Grenadines to encourage their children to participate in this year’s I-square Competition.

This call was made by Universal Service Fund (USF) Project Officer at the NTRC, Shanka Edwards.

The I-square Competition is geared towards allowing students from Secondary and Tertiary level Institutions to put forward ideas that can implement new systems or improve existing systems in Departments in the Public service and the competition for 2015/2016 will be launched on September 10th.

Miss Edwards said as St. Vincent and the Grenadines seeks to become a developed country, the use of technology will be an integral part of this development.

She said the I-Square competition is an important platform for the nation’s youths to be productive through the use of technology.
