For me, one of the most exciting things about working with students is seeing their passion and absolute belief that they can, in fact, change the world.  At Microsoft, we want to do whatever we can to encourage that optimism, and to help students use their technical skills in ways that can help make the world a better place.  That’s the goal of our annual student technology competition, the Imagine Cup. See my earlier posts on Imagine Cup here.

This week, I had the humbling experience of being in the presence of some of these bright, young students who are taking action to change the world at the U.S. Imagine Cup finals in Cambridge, Mass.  I just wrote a post on Microsoft On The Issues blog announcing this year's winners. Check out who will represent the U.S. in the worldwide finals happening in Egypt!
