Microsoft Imagine Cup begins

Like every year, Microsoft Imagine is going to take place this year too. In 2003, software giant Microsoft started a software innovation competition called Microsoft Imagine Cup, aimed at inspiring some of the most intelligent students around the world to solve world's toughest problems, says a press release.

For the tenth times Microsoft Imagine Cup World Wide Final will take place in July this year in Sydney, Australia.

As a part of the world wide campaign, Microsoft Bangladesh for the second time is organising a software competition. Only students above 16 years of age and living in Bangladesh can participate in the contest with a team of one to four.

The winning team will take part in the international grand finale in Sydney. Microsoft Bangladesh will bear all the expenses of the participating team there. And the winning team of the finale will be awarded with US $25000.
