KhmerOS project will conduct a Unicode Typing contest that is organised by the National Information Communications Development Authority of the Royal Government of Cambodia (NiDA) and the WordForge Foundation, in the framework of the KhmerOS joint project at the end of this year 2006. The Unicode Typing Contest is a National Contest in which participants compete on typing and document formatting skills in Khmer language. More specifically, they compete on the speed at which they can type in Khmer (Unicode fonts) and on the speed at which they can prepare a simple office document.
The Unicode Typing Contest will take place in each province of Cambodia. The national contest will take place in Phnom Penh with the winners of the provincial contests. The contest has two categories: individual and teams (of five members each). The contest offers monetary prices to individual winners of provincial contests and national contest. Prices for team competition will probably be in kind (computers). For more information about the contest, please you visit this page in khmer: http://www.khmeros.info/contest
