As I write this post, over 400 students from every corner of the world are competing in Warsaw, Poland at the finals of the 2010 Imagine Cup.
Every single one of these students is a winner.
Over 325,000 students registered for this year’s competition and through local and regional competitions, these 400 have battled their way to the world finals.
The Imagine Cup challenges students to think about how they can use technology to solve some of the world’s toughest problems as inspired by the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals.
Their ingenuity and creativity, not to mention their technology skills, are absolutely incredible. I had the privilege of attending the 2009 Imagine Cup world finals in Cairo, Egypt and it’s impossible to share the excitement of the event through a single blog post.
The great news is that you can follow the excitement online.
