Dec. 11, 2012 - PRLog -- Students who have not yet registered for Microsoft’s 2013 Imagine Cup student tech competition in Russia have until this Friday, the 15th of December to do so using referral code IC13 and their .edu email addresses. Early registrants who sign up in this way will also be entered to win a free Xbox 360 bundle.

The competitions’ core prizes are cash prizes in the amounts of fifty-thousand dollars, ten-thousand dollars, or five-thousand dollars to first, second, and third place, respectively. Furthermore, finalists receive a free trip to St. Petersburg, Russia. As the self-proclaimed “world’s most prestigious student competition,” the Imagine Cup challenges student teams to create the next great video game, innovation, or app to make the world a better place.

To register, students should visit http://www.imaginecup.com/, and then click the “Sign Up / Sign In” link in the top right corner of the page. Finally, students must complete the brief sign-up form using their “.edu” email address, as well as the referral code IC13. Interested individuals can find out more via the following video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9F-xymqoZBk.

“This is something students aren’t going to want to delay on,” said Marc Sorel, college marketing industry specialist. “You see it happen all of the time with these college-student geared promotions where students say they’ll get to it tomorrow, and then they end up missing out on a great opportunity because something comes up and they never act.”

Groups of no more than 4 students and up to one professor mentor can enter the competition. Entry categories include: 1) World Citizenship, in which students must make an app that could change someone’s life 2) Games, in which students are challenged to create the next great video game, and 3) Innovation, in which student must transform an existing infrastructure, such as online shopping, social media, etc..

Rachel Noah, college marketing specialist from the Boston area, said: “Any students with an understanding of programing will be able to find some aspect of this competition that entices them. If gaming isn’t their thing, then the innovation category or world citizenship category might catch their attention, or vice versa.”

The competition has gotten particular attention this year, as the cash prizes offered are larger than in any previous year. All said and done, Microsoft is poised to pay out near one-hundred-thousand dollars in total cash and prizes. Naturally, this sum is exclusive of the cost to launch, promote, and operate the competition.
