Microsoft Imagine Cup: Watch Satya Nadella Announce the Winners Live Tomorrow

It’s Microsoft Imagine Cup week, and this year we’re going big! The Imagine Cup World Finals have been taking place all week here in Seattle, and tomorrow, Friday, August 1st at 8:30 a.m. PT, you can join Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella for the final award showdown, simply by tuning in to the live stream of the Imagine Cup World Championship awards ceremony. There are some pretty incredible prizes to be won…including a private meeting with Bill Gates. Along with Satya, many other VIP judges will be on hand, including Hadi Partovi, the founder of non-profit Code.org(and a Daily Edventures alum), and Erik Martin, the general manager of Reddit.com.

The Microsoft Imagine Cup is the world’s premier student technology competition. Since its beginning 12 years ago, more than 1.65 million students from more than 190 countries have participated in the Imagine Cup. Witnessing these kids – 16 years and up, from all over the world — share ideas, have fun, and create incredible work is truly an honor. Each year, students create projects based on three categories: Games, Innovation and World Citizenship. And you can follow along with the competition, not only by watching Satya declare the victor, but also right here at Daily Edventures where I will be sharing my own conversations and interviews with many of the 2014 finalists. 

Also this year, Seattle’s Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) and Microsoft will host Imagine Cup Day on Saturday, August 2nd. This will be a family-friendly affair, and the museum will open its doors for free to the public, while the Imagine Cup world finalists showcase their projects. If you are in the Seattle area, please join us at MOHAI and bring the family.

And don’t forget to join Satya Nadella tomorrow by tuning in to the live stream of the Imagine Cup World Championships. Congratulations to all the teams who competed in our National and Online Finals, to the 170+ teams who made it to the World Semifinals, and to the 35 teams who have made it all the way to Seattle!
