Meet the teams who will compete at the Canadian Imagine Cup Finals April 13th, 2013. The winning team at the Canadian finals will represent Canada at the world finals in St Petersburg, Russia!

 

Imagine Cup Russia

Last week judges played games, explored Kinect projects, and evaluated a variety of entries in Canada’s Imagine Cup. The judges selected Canadian winners in each of three categories. Each winning team will receive Windows 8 Phones courtesy of our sponsor HTC

  • Innovation

  • Games

  • World Citizenship

The winners in each of these categories will present to a panel of distinguished judges who will decide which team will best represent Canada at the Imagine Cup worldwide finals in St Petersburg, Russia this July!

Teams who did not win these individual categories are still entered in the online world finals, so we could see two Canadian teams in Russia!

Let’s meet our finalists!
