Starting with 2006/2007 school year, a team of coordinating teachers was created, with the main objective of nationally promoting the competition.

Promoting .Campion by the means of the electronic journal infoman.musala.com, persuaded more than 180 new competitors to join the contest.

Young people form South-East and Central Europe prove to be extremely competitive in this field, and .Campion Competition supports them constantly in achieving remarkable performances”, declare prof. Radu Jugureanu, eContent Manager with SIVECO Romania.

This year the Bulgarian participants are expected to be very strong competitors, since they have the chance to prove their talent and show their full potential as IT&C specialists.
