Imagine Cup competitions and challenges detailed
As we promised before, we’ll get to Imagine Cup Competitions and Challenges in more details to let you understand what’s the idea and goal behind them, so you can know what category is best suited for your project.
But before we start, I’d like to say few words.
I know how it feels, starting a new project, the fear of failing, the fear of it all goes to waste .. you should never let that stop you from being creative and productive, if we all surrendered to our fears, no one would have ever achieved anything, competitions like this is what give us purpose, a fire, an energy to work hard and get our project to see the light and make the world a better place.
so taking part in it, is a great career move, the things you can learn while making your project are huge, there is no better way to learn than doing it yourself.
Starting with the Competitions:
World Citizenship competition:
The world as it is today is facing so many challenges; these challenges are waiting for creative and talented people to come up with a solution to them. You can be the person the world is waiting for; find a problem in the world, even in your own life or community, that affects many people, and then work to solve it. Create a desktop or tablet project using Windows, or a mobile project using Windows Phone, or a browser project using Windows Azure and you could win big at the Imagine Cup World Finals in Seattle 2014.
The World is waiting for you!
Throughout history, games have demonstrated the impact they can have on people and society constituents. You are a fan of video gaming and have ideas on how a game should look like, then the Game design competition is made for people like you, Then get a team, make a plan, and make it happen! Create a desktop or tablet game using Windows, or a mobile game using Windows Phone, or a browser game using Windows Azure and you could win big at the Imagine Cup World Finals in Seattle 2014.
The progress humanity has made since its existence is due to the fact that there was people who believed in their capacity to innovate and bring great things into existence. If you believe in being an innovator then get an innovative idea in whatever field you may think of, from Social networks, music services, digital photography apps, gadgets and robotics, to any tech related field, make your team and work on it. Create a desktop or tablet project using Windows, or a mobile project using Windows Phone, or a browser project using Windows Azure and you could win big at the Imagine Cup World Finals in Seattle 2014.

Note: Imagine cup encourages students to bring great ideas into existence, so if you have any idea that you thing would revolutionize the world but you know nothing about programming and apps, you still can participate in the Imagine cup competition by making up a team of people where each person would be a particular task to perform during idea making, or you can simply compete in one of the following challenges!!

Because technology is about bringing comfort into the life of those who possess it, the Windows and windows phone challenge, challenges you to find someone within you network, partner with them and see how you can make an app that meets their needs. and you can win a trip to Seattle here too 😀
Brain 2.0 challenge:
Each month there will be two quizzes on a different theme. The student with the best score and the fastest completion time across both quizzes is our winner for the month and gets $1,000. Even if you don’t win the monthly contest, you’ve still got a shot.
