    An Auckland teenager has been crowned the world's Microsoft PowerPoint champion


    Fifteen-year-old Tristan Mona has beaten more than 760-thousand competitors from over a hundred countries- in an exam to re-create a presentation put together by Certiport and Microsoft.

    The Avondale High pupil has been practising his Power point skills since February - spending about three hours a day honing his skills.
