Microsoft notes that only the top competitors in each round will make it through to the next level until there is one Excel Champ from each country. Then, in early 2017 the country champions and an international winner will join compete against each other for the championship title, a grand prize trip to Seattle, Washington, and a chance to meet with Excel product leads.

The first round of the competition begins on October 3rd, 2016.
