Microsoft has announced the competitions for next year's student competition. The prize money has increased and Microsoft is going to fly every finalist team to St Petersburg, Russia for the Worldwide Finals.
This year there are thee competitions each with a top prize of $50,000 (USD) and three challenges with top prizes of $10,000 (USD). Participants must be 16 and older - which means that high school students are eligible as well as university students.
Writing on the MSDN blog, Alfred Thompson points out:
" ....success in the Imagine Cup is a great resume builder. Not only that many teams in the past have taken their Imagine Cup projects and made businesses out of them. For example Australian Imagine Cup 2012 Team StethoCloud was recently featured in the 'Innovators' section of Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine!"
So what can students expect when they enter the 2013 Imagine Cup?
Over the past ten years, more than 1.65 million students from more than 190 countries have participated in the Imagine Cup and have created innovative solutions that uses Microsoft technologies to their full extent. As well as prizes and grants, Microsoft offers many of the resources that students need to take part in the regional competitions around the world that will culminate in the finals in July 2013 in Russia.
