Over 900 children thronged the convention centre at Kochi for their edition of TCS IT Wiz. Smiling, Chatting, Quizzing and Tweeting they all had a blast as the prelim seemed simple and they seemed to score easily and wanted no clues. The finalists who made it from the prelim were:

Saraswathi Vidyaniketan : Dhananjay and Pratyush
Gregorian Public : Anirudh and YS Mathew
Bhavans Munshi Vidyashram : Sidharth Sajeev and Roshan John
GKD Coimbatore : Libney Patrick and Satya Narayanan
Navy Children School : Nandu Krishnan and Arjun Sunil
Chinmaya Vidyalaya : Darshan and Aditya

The final was a cliff-hanger with all the teams evenly placed at the end of the first couple of rounds. The quality of answers underlined the ever-increasing interest and comfort towards IT in this region of India.

In the TCS round, the quiz opened up even further as the Navy Children and Chinmaya were in the lead but closely followed by GKD, and Sarawathi Vidyaniketan. As the excitement mounted and the quiz ended in a tie for the top spot between three teams.

The three were Sarawathi Vidyaniketan, Chinmaya and the Navy Children. Chinmaya went for the buzzer first but got it wrong, while Saraswathi Vidyakaya closed it clinically with a perfect answer.

The chief guest, Md. Safirulla, IAS, District Collector, Ernakulam and Dinesh Thampi, VP and Delivery Center Head, TCS Kerala gave away the prizes.
