Skillizen Learning Foundation, a Singapore based global socio-educational company, announces the launch of registrations for International Life Skills Olympiad, 2019.

International Life Skills Olympiad (ILSO) is the world’s first and only Olympiad that tests young children’s Life Skills Aptitude. This global test is specifically designed for school children (including home-schooled ones) from Class III to XII. This test will primarily focus on evaluating real-world skills and competencies that are critical for young children to manage and succeed in their personal, professional and social lives. The most unique thing about this Olympiad is that it gives participants an opportunity to make decisions about real-life situations by applying essential life skills such as leadership, ethics, teamwork, communication, empathy, goal setting, etc.

 

The registration line for ILSO is live; registration has a nominal registration fee of USD 7.99 or Rs 490. Interested parents and schools can register students on www.lifeskillsolympiad.org by paying the nominal registration fee that includes life skills guides, practice questions, and a mock test. In 2018, large numbers of children from 2000+ schools and 61 countries participated in this global online Olympiad. Besides many other grand prizes, winners were given a free air ticket to visit Harvard University.

The primary vision behind holding the Life Skills Olympiad, as explained by Mr. Sidharth Tripathy (Chief Convener of Skillizen Olympiad Foundation), is to prepare young children for real-world challenges.  While preparing for ILSO, participants will not only acquire new life skills but will also get an opportunity to match their skill at a global level against children from 100 plus countries.
