URCA Launches 2017 ICT Competition
Thursday October 12th, 2017

In today’s world, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are vital, not just to individual consumers, but also to the development of countries large and small. As regulator for the Electronic Communications Sector (ECS) in The Bahamas the Utilities Regulation and Competition Authority (URCA) recognizes the role that ICTs can play in improving the lives of Bahamians throughout the archipelago. To promote this concept among young Bahamians, on 29 September 2017 URCA officially launched its first ICT Competition for students and young adults throughout the country. The launch took place at the R.M. Bailey High School supported by the principal, Mr. Colin Johnson and director of the schools’ Student Success Programme, Ms. Monique Johnson-Mullings.

URCA’s ICT Competition aims to promote the use of, access to and the development of content based ICTs in The Bahamas. URCA sees young Bahamians as the most important and influential pioneers of an ICT enabled future for The Bahamas. URCA hopes that this competition will help promote and encourage students and young adults to develop ideas, concepts and solutions for the use of ICTs to achieve more efficient delivery of essential services in The Bahamas and development of our communities, and to thereby become part of the global ecosystem of ICT content creators.
