Edition 2020 – Free participation
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are living troubled and disturbing times. Many schools are closed all over the world. Obviously, it will be difficult for you to participate in the 18th Internet Keyboarding competition.
Nevertheless, I’m sure you are now in virtual contact with your students/teachers and experimenting e-learning; so something is possible.
Therefore, with the Board’s agreement, the jury has decided:
If you have additional question, if you encounter any problem, please contact me by email.

Number of competitors by year:
During the opening ceremony of the 52nd congress in Cagliari (July 2019), Jaroslav Zaviačič and Helena Zaviačičová awarded 8 winners of the 2019 Internet contest. Of course they were present to participate in the World Championship! Most of them were successful and classified in the first places in their age category.
This competition is the most important international championship, attended by more than 1500 participants who compete in 17 languages. Each competitor can compare his results with those of other participants of the same age category not only in his native language, but also in as many as 17 foreign languages. Grading in accuracy and speed are done according to internationally agreed-upon standards based on long experience and intensive investigations. Thanks to this competition, schools are able to show their presence on the Web at the international level about a useful ability at any learning level. It is clear that a professional approach in keyboarding is a basic competence useful in any type of school and helps to fulfill the growing demand for producing documents and communicating with the aid of computers and tablets. This ability, in mother tongue (native language) as well as in foreign languages, will be an important asset for professional life and can be demonstrated by the certificate received by successful participants. The goal of this competition is to foster proficiency in the use of the keyboard and to engage young people in fair and healthy competition with their peers all over the world. The contest consists of ten-minutes of text entry, using special software available on the website www.intersteno.org (in Taki and ZAV formats).
