All finalists received prizes from Cluster members. Overall, nine participants received awards from IT companies of Lviv IT Cluster.
The competition took place for the third time this year. During previous years, Lviv IT Cluster has already awarded two schools with computer labs. Lviv IT Cluster members: Conscencia, Sigma Software, Eleks, Ostware Services, SoftServe, GlobalLogic, Perfectial, and LITS and LITS4kids – presented the students with prizes.
“We actively support the competition because we understand: the more talented IT students we have, the more successful IT professionals we will get in a few years. Several thousand students have passed through the competition over the years, and we hope that they will choose IT in the future. Cluster members like no other understand the need for talented IT professionals in the city and help talented students,” says CEO at Lviv IT Cluster Stepan Veselovskyi.
