PARIS – July 8, 2008 – Microsoft Corp. today announced the winners of Imagine Cup 2008 at the Musée du Louvre, after a week of intense competition among finalists chosen from a pool of more than 200,000 students from over 100 countries and regions. Celebrating first place, Australia’s Team SOAK won the worldwide Software Design invitational, Singapore’s Team Trail Blazers won the Embedded Development invitational, and Brazil’s Mother Gaia Studio won the Game Development challenge. Imagine Cup, the world’s premier competition for technology students, gives students the chance to unlock their creative genius and build solutions that tackle real-world issues facing society today.
