Imagine Cup Australia – no dream too big!


From world hunger to disease to environmental change, our planet faces many challenges. But when met with imagination and ideas, obstacles turn into opportunities.

Imagine Cup is a global competition for student teams who combine inspiration with technology to tackle some of the world’s toughest problems. Every year, students come up with amazing solutions that use technology to improve education, help environmental sustainability, and reduce poverty and child mortality.

If you are a student, or know students, assemble your team together, put your thinking caps on and start imagining how you can help create a better future! Winning teams have a chance to share their ideas at the Imagine Cup 2012 Worldwide Finals right here in Australia and compete for cash grants and other prizes! The skills and experience you could gain while developing your ideas, the confidence that comes with presenting your innovations, and the access you get to influential business leaders could be life changing – as they’ve been for many previous contestants.

If you can imagine how technology could help solve the world’s toughest problems, it’s time to enter Imagine Cup 2012.
