As a special prize from 1C Company, all winners received invitations to undergo internships at the 1C Development and Training Centre and with leading 1C partners. They will be able to take advantage of the resources of 1C-founded departments at leading universities and take part in exciting automation projects on the 1C:Enterprise platform.

Chief Expert Joey C. Manansala Jr (Philippines) noted that the objective of the Sandbox competition was to evaluate 1C:Enterprise together with other development platforms and that it would be considered as part of the infrastructure list for Skill 09 in WorldSkills Shanghai 2021. Competitors using 1C:Enterprise ranked 1st, 3rd, and 5th out of nine competitors.
