Microsoft is excited to announce the Excel World Championship competition—#ExcelWorldChamp! Millions of people rely on Excel to get things done faster and make their lives easier. We want to meet all of you Excel fans and see what you can do.
The Excel World Championship participants will show their skills and creativity as they work through questions focusing on:
- Data management
- Data visualization
- Formula writing
From October to November 2016, Microsoft will run four rounds of Excel tests for residents of select countries. Only the top competitors in each round will make it through to the next level—until ultimately there is one Excel Champ from each country! Prizes for the country competitions vary. Residents of countries without a dedicated competition can compete in our open international competition.
In early 2017, the country champions and the international winner will compete against each other for the title of “Excel World Champ” to win a grand prize trip to Seattle, Washington, to meet with Excel product leads and help provide feedback for the next Excel features.
Round One begins October 3, 2016! For more details on the competition rules, eligible countries and registration, check out the Excel World Championship website.
