What is the MOS U.S. National Championship?

The Microsoft Office Specialist U.S. National Championship presented by Certiport, a Pearson VUE Business, is a competition that tests students’ skills on Microsoft Office Word, Excel® and PowerPoint®. Top students are invited to represent their respective states at the U.S. National Championship. In some states, students are invited to participate in a Statewide Championship, and the winners of that event continue on to the U.S. National Championship.

Individual partners/states may have additional published rules.
