It's that time of year again, the Windows Embedded Student Challenge 2006 is open for business.   

Are you ready to change the world? Then enter the third annual Windows ChallengE! The competition challenges undergraduate teams of four—with a faculty mentor —to design a computer-based system that solves a real-world problem. Organized by Microsoft in association with IEEE's Computer Society International Design Competition, this contest gives all registered Windows ChallengE teams an opportunity to come to Redmond, WA, to present their projects for a chance to win cash prizes. Participating teams also have the opportunity to be selected for the CSIDC finals in Washington, D.C. To get started, make sure to register online today.

This years theme is “Preserving, protecting and enhancing the environment”.
