The grand finale of the 4-day coding competition (which started on Monday) took place today at Methodist Girl’s High School, Yaba, Lagos and saw a total of 39 schools – 21 schools in the Junior Category and 18 schools in the Senior Category, slug it out for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions for each category.

The 3 winning schools (with 3 representatives each) for each category were selected from the top 5 schools after making a presentation of their code-work to the audience and judges.
