We are proud to announce this year’s five outstanding grand prize winners for the Microsoft YouthSpark Challenge for Change! Among the winners, four countries are represented including two inspiring students from Asia!
Microsoft YouthSpark Challenge for Change is a global contest that encourages young people who are passionate about social causes to submit their ideas for how they can spark social good in their communities, college campuses or throughout the world, using the new Windows and Office. Five grand prize winners will receive a volunteer travel experience in the Amazon, $2,500 cash to kick-start their projects and a Microsoft technology bundle including Windows Phone 8, Xbox One and Surface 2 (or equivalent device).
Globally more than 10 million students globally have already taken the ‘Hour of Code’ challenge and with 3 billion people speaking more than 2,000 different languages across the Asia Pacific region it is hoped many more students will sign up to adopt ‘code’ as their official second language.
