Finding immense success from YGC season one, YIT considered about taking a step further to reach the ICT students at school. As a result the team came up with the idea of conducting YGC for juniors which will be a platform for the school-goers to innovate and share their IT knowledge. Although this platform looks like a competition, and it is a competition, the main purpose to hold this is to reach out for youngsters at school and encourage them to innovate. Ranking the teams as first, second and third will not mean that any other innovations are bad, because YIT looks at the innovations as an achievement of the teams and it looks at the courage among the teams that brought it forward to the community. Every product of the teams at YGC has a value and stands for its uniqueness. So, just take a step, and dare to bring your idea and innovation through this single platform available for those school-goers in Jaffna.
In search of talents in the school geeks, YIT set the platform for juniors in YGC season 2, in which around 15 teams participated. There were teams from Vembadi Girls High School, Jaffna Hindu College and schools from the Islands. The grand finale for the finalists turned out to be on October 20th. It was amazing to find the abundance of potential among the participants, and the peak of that potential and willingness brought three teams to the top in rank.
Two teams from Jaffna Hindu College were ranked first and second, while a team from Vembadi Girls’ High School achieved the third place. The certificates to the winners were handed by the former Olympian Mr. Ethirveerasingam. All the participants were given certificates, too.
