Participants will have a list of challenges to meet in the shortest possible time and with satisfactory results. All competition will be streamed on social networks, so you will be able to support your country and favorite participants during national phase, as well as during International Grand Final!

There will be a 4-hour session where participants will be shared with a series of challenges to implement in a 30-day trial subscription of Microsoft 365 E5 licensing.

The first participant to solve the challenges (with evidence) will be the national winner and will have access to the Teams-a-Thon International Grand Final.
