WINNER: Lokhandwala Foundation - Ajaykrishnan and Krishnav Roy

RUNNER UP: Rajhans Vidyalaya - Preetanjan and Anant Kamath

The final regional round of the TCS IT Wiz was held at Mumbai with over 800 kids participating in the prelim. The keenness and enthusiasm of the kids was a treat to watch as the prelim got underway.

The finalists were:

Singhania School - Nishit and Shantanuk
Navy Childrens School - Lakshya and Akashdeep
Rajhans Vidyalaya - Preetanjan and Ananth Kamath
Lokhandwala - Ajaykrishnan and Krishnav Roy
Ruparel College - Saurabh and Sumedh
Dhirubhai Ambani - Niel Satra and Sanchay J

The final witnessed the team from the Singhania school take the early leads only for Rajahans Vidyalala and Lokhandwala Foundation School to catch up. As the first couple of round went by and the buzzer came into play, the other teams took risks to get closer to the top three teams but it did not really pay off.

The duo from Rajahans and Lokhandwala consolidated and got ahead of the rest to fight a close battle, so close that the two teams finished with the same score to force a tie breaker..

In the tie that followed, the duo from Lokhandwala got the better of their senior opponents to make it to the national final. What was special about the victory was that the champs are still in class 9 and become one of the youngest to make it to the national final.

The guest of honour Mr.Mahalingam, the CFO of TCS summarised the .quiz aptly stating the teams displayed a "confident India" for the years ahead.
