Jammu youth wins digital skills contest


He comes from a state where Internet bans and stone-throwing incidents have hogged the headlines in recent past. But, against all odds, Prince Sumberia (21) of Jammu and Kashmir won an Asia-level digital skills competition in Singapore, edging out competitors from six other countries.

The Asia Digital Skills Challenge, one of the biggest competitions of its kind in the continent, was organised by the non-profit International Computer Driving Licence Foundation and was open to students aged between 18 and 25 years. The competition was held in three tiers — college, national and Asia level.
