    Hi Gen, I was wondering about how the Imagine cup works exactly…
    How many finalists are there from Canada? Are the chances very slim to get to the finals? Have you been chosen to move forward?

    Thank you! I am very interested and planning to join next year

    Hey!
    The Imagine Cup started about 8 years ago by Microsoft and any student can enter. It’s an entirely global competition – which also makes it A LOT of fun! Canadian finalists participated last year and went to Cairo, Egpyt. In fact they came in second place in their division. (The province of Quebec and North Korea cannot enter, however).
    I don’t know the exact numbers of people who apply. I do know there are a lot, but if you work hard on your project and your passionate about Microsoft Tech and social awareness – they’ll see that and you’ll go far.
    I was not a participant – I covered the event as Press and Blogger. Although I got to know a lot of the teams, and make some good friends. You also get to participate in nights out on the town (we went to the ESPN Zone in Washington) and pre-competition you also get to introduce yourself to people by exchanging colored clips with people.
    If you have any other questions, I’d love to give you more information 🙂
    I do hope you participate next year! It’s a great way to meet professionals in the tech industry and even masterminds like James Cameron 😉
    Good luck!
    Gen
