As I write about communications with aliens, I have found out about the Imagine Cup, and my discussion about game design can certainly be used to win some very large coinage! Like 15,000 dollars in coinage!
Imagine that you, a friend or relative could win $8,000 for taking some pictures about the environment? Imagine that you, a friend or relative could win $25,000 for creating a game that help people understand the problems with the environment better? Imagine that you, a friend or relative could win up to $25,000 for creating a project to help save the environment? (Note: All links on this page go through a tool to measure the number of click through's).
To sign up for the Imagine Cup go to the http://imaginecup.com, some of the rules are, (see the Imagine Cup rules and regulations about the Imagine Cup):
You do have to sign-up, which requires some information, here are the screens that you will see, the first part is the initial sign-up page, then I go through the profile component, if you are under 18, make sure your parents know what you are doing. If you are over 18, your parents will think that it showing a lot of initiative to play this game, so you might want to mention it to them as well. Anyway:
To sign-up, you will see this registration page, I used my Live ID, this filled in my profile automatically which saves time, but in your case you may have to fill in the profile information later in the process (this is a long table that tells you about the sign up process on the Imagine Cup, it would just be easier to go to the site and fill it out, but in case you are cautious, a good thing):
You will be ask for your name and a screen name, if the screen name is in use, you will see a small red bar indicating that your selected screen name was taken.
Back to game design in the next posting!
