Randy Guthrie (Microsoft Senior Technical Evangelist) shared this information about the Microsoft Imagine Cup with me:
Team up with friends or fellow developers to enter your world-changing software innovations to the U.S. Imagine Cup – a global student technology competition presented by Microsoft.
