Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, has announced that registration is now open for college students across the nation to compete in both the Arizona Onsite and Spring Virtual Avnet Tech Games.

The Spring Virtual Avnet Tech Games competition is open to college students nationwide. The onsite competition is open to Arizona college students only and will be held April 13, 2013, at The University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, Ariz. Both competitions challenge students to test their knowledge, creativity, decision-making, problem-solving and technical skills.

“We continue to invest in the Avnet Tech Games year after year because we believe strongly in the value it brings to the community and industry,” said Teri Radosevich, vice president of community relations and public affairs, Avnet, Inc. “These games provide college students with an opportunity to experience realistic work situations, faculty gain insight into today’s business needs and the business community benefits because graduates are better prepared for the workplace.”
