Ok now I don't want to be one to complain and before I start, I have to say that since we won Imagine Cup Canada I have had many great chances to meet wonderful people and make contacts that I hope will be very helpful looking for work in the future, as well I'm sure it helped in finding my current coop position... But this struck me as kinda interesting. I was just reading a blog by Chris Stewart, who was part of a team that placed 9th in the US national Imagine Cup competition. {Congratulations to their team!} In his most recent post Chris complains about the quality of the winning applications etc. and then goes on to say “Lastly, because of the national competition (being in the top 9 of 286 teams in the US), Microsoft has been contacting me about potential summer internship opportunities.” This sounds like a really great opportunity for the 9 teams in the US. 

If being in the top 9 US teams means MS recruiters will start chasing you with job offers, what does being in the top 3 Canadian teams mean?

Hope you get your chance, it would be a shame to see MS Corp. look past your team. If not, INETA Academic is looking for some good students to lead up our IAA (Industry Academic Alliance) if your or your friends our interested.

Hi,

I was wondering if you could help me out. I want to enter the Imagine Cup for 2006 but I can't seem to find any info anywhere, just dead links and stuff. I checked www.thespoke.com but couldn't find anything. How did you enter last year?

Thanks,

Andrew
