Nine of teams that arrived in St. Petersburg last week for the Worldwide Finals of the Imagine Cup were already prize winners in the three challenges for which the initial stages were held exclusively online. But which teams would be placed first to win the $10,000 prizes?
The aim of the Windows Phone, Windows Azure and Windows 8 App Challenges is to give students opportunities for learning, prototyping and creating apps using the newest Microsoft technologies. To participate teams had first to pass a qualifying quiz and then build and package an app and also describe it and create a video explaining and demonstrating it.
Three teams from each of the Challenges were chosen to attend the Worldwide Finals where each gave a live presentation to the judges, receive feedback, and make final changes before the final judging.
Each First Place team won of $10,000; with Second Place awards of $5,000 and Third Place worth $3,000.
