It’s a great time to be a Student Windows Phone Developer in the South, especially if you attend a College or University in the GA, FL, AL or MS. Why? Because many of you have the opportunity to compete on your campus in a Windows Phone Development Contest for some cool accolades and prizes. In the past month, students have attended an appLab.Phone() session and/or a WP7 Hackathon on their campus in order to build Windows Phone applications to compete for it all, go for the Goal Line…wait I mean the Phone Marketplace line. Smile Prizes have been sponsored like XBOX/Kinect Bundles, Windows Phones, and other Exciting Prizes. So are you ready to win?

Check out the students at Georgia Tech and University of South Florida after participating and building WP7 phone apps in the Windows Phone appLab or Windows Phone Hackathon.
