When older generations ask what's wrong with kids these days, fingers often point squarely at technology.As director of IBDAA ICT Center, Sabbah is organizing Lebanon's upcoming, third annual IBDAA National IT Competition, which offers scholarships and gifts to student participants of all grades who demonstrate that they can use technology for positive purposes.What Sabbah calls "good usage of IT" is grounded in values such as loyalty, kindness, love of country and etiquette.Sabbah believes that integrating values within education is particularly important in Lebanon.To attract students like Hajj, the national competition offers gifts and both full and partial scholarships for students.Though the exact dates of this year's competition haven't been announced, Sabbah says that it should begin in the next month or so, and will be divided into three stages.
