Dear WSYA 2012 Winners,

On behalf of the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT 2012) and in collaboration with the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA), I am pleased to welcome you to the 18th WCIT taking place in Montréal, Canada.

Over the years, the World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) has become an exceptional platform to showcase how young digital natives use technologies to tackle the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations. From local mobile health initiatives to far-flung networks that address climate change, WSYA winners are showing the world how to fuse technology, entrepreneurship, and social innovation. WCIT 2012 is proud to celebrate the achievements of young people from around the world by partnering with WSYA.

On behalf of WCIT 2012, I wish to express my congratulations to the winners of the 2012 awards: your projects redefine the term “ICT” and demonstrate how to use the Internet and Mobiles to inspire global change and create a better future.

I sincerely hope that you will enjoy the Program and wish you an unforgettable stay in the city of Montréal!

On behalf of the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA), I would like to congratulate you for being selected as a WSYA winner.  Being selected for such a prestigious award demonstrates your commitment to making the world a better place and fulfilling the great promise of the Digital Age.

I would also like to welcome you as a group to WITSA’s 18th World Congress on IT.  This is the first time both WITSA and the WSYA have joined together at a World Congress in order to foster WITSA’s involvement with young entrepreneurs and to provide you with early and in-depth exposure of your ideas and applications to a global audience of ICT executives and media.

Congratulations!  Welcome to Montréal!
