Vote Now for Imagine Cup People's Choice Award!

Imagine Cup started back in 2003 as a way to get students involved in the connection between people, information, and systems.

So what IS the Imagine Cup?

Simply put, it’s the world’s premier student technology competition. Beginning with local and regional competitions, Imagine Cup 2011 comes to an exciting finale at the Worldwide Finals held in New York City, United States from July 8-13,2011. . Overall, the idea is to show how technology can help solve the world’s toughest problems.

The theme of this year’s Imagine Cup is “Solving the world’s toughest problems with Technology” (e.g., poverty, energy conservation, environment, global health, etc.).

Two teams from Universities in the Heartland District have made it to the US finals for IMAGINE CUP. The teams are LIFECODE (Software Design) from Wayne State University, and MINTRUS (Game Design) from  University of Louisville.  Team LIFECODE and TEAM MINTRUS are made up of exceptional students, with brilliant ideas, and big hearts.

Part of the competition is public voting.   Each of you, your friends, your family, or others can vote for each team once per day.   LIFECODE and MINTRUS are currently in the bottom 3rd for voting,  so let’s give them a boost and get them some more votes from the best district in the US.  Visit the below links to the team’s Facebook pages, and give them your Votes:
