Hey folks,

Wow, January was an amazing month for Brain Games! We had more students than ever take a crack at our first Games trivia quiz. I guess a lot of you must love games?

This month our theme is Innovation. I know you're a savvy tech user and when you look back at the history of amazing innovations in this world, it can be pretty breathtaking. Our quiz master, Mike Selinker, and his team have cooked up thirty fun new questions for you that I think you're going to love . . . or hate! :) As always, you are welcome to use a search engine for the answers. That doesn't mean they're easy . . .

Our Innovation trivia quiz just went live and you can take it right now:

  1. Log in to your account at ImagineCup.com.
  2. Visit your Dashboard and find Brain Games.
  3. Click the Take a Quiz link.
  4. Get started!

Our new Innovation quiz ends February 15. The winner this month will receive one thousand dollars (U.S.)

Everyone who enters this month will get a ticket to our grand prize sweepstakes of a free trip to St. Petersburg, Russia, this July to attend the Imagine Cup World Finals.

We've found our January winner! I'm very happy to announce that Keng Siang from Malaysia won our Games quiz and he tells me he intends to buy a Windows Phone 8 with his $1,000 (US) prize money. Congratulations, Keng Siang!

Have fun, good luck, and I can’t wait to see how you all do with our latest quiz!
