Online Competition

The Imagine Cup Epic Challenge gives students the chance to pitch their technology project and provide a project plan to be screened and evaluated by a panel of judges. The top Epic project from each region will advance to the World Finals pending successful completion of entering Round 1 following the close of the Epic Challenge. The top 12 teams will receive feedback from our judges to update their project for the next round.

It's your chance to tell the story of your project and your team, what you're trying to accomplish, how you’ll do it, and what the result will be like. It encourages students to think through their project before diving in and write down their plans before they get started. Who will your users be? What are their needs? And finally, how will you get your project to market and make enough money for you to support it?
