Hampton Roads area students from 6th through the 12th grade will have the opportunity to prove just how much they know about computers Saturday, March 11, by participating in the 18th Annual Great Computer Challenge at Old Dominion University's Webb Center.

Co-sponsored by Old Dominion, WHRO and the Consortium for Interactive Instruction (CII), the competition challenges students to demonstrate their skills in various computer applications and programming by solving problems they might face in the "real world." The Computer Challenge has two different divisions: a Senior Division for grades 6-12 (to be held March 11), and a Junior Division for grades K-5 (to be held April 29).

In the Senior Division competition, students will compete in the following categories: Desktop Presentations, Desktop Publishing, Graphic Arts, Music, Web Design, Integrated Applications, Visual Basic Programming, C++ Programming and Computer Assisted Design (CAD).

Old Dominion faculty and staff, as well as local business leaders, will judge the competition, which will be held in Webb University Center. First, second and third place, as well as honorable mention, will be recognized in each category.
