Today I'm very pleased to announce the five teams who are advancing to Round Two of the Apps for Office Challenge . These students wrote great proposals that impressed our judges on the Microsoft Office team and all five teams will now develop their projects further. At the end of Round Two, two of these teams will be selected as finalists and flown to Seattle for the Imagine Cup World Finals in late July, 2014.

The teams advancing to Round Two are:
iGeek (China) Education Toolkit for Office
NeangTeam (Indonesia) Exam Management
Ambiless (China) SemanticCut
Lake of Timber (Canada) Muusika
CodeBlue (India) Molecule Maker

Judging the many excellent proposals we received took longer than expected and I apologize for the delay. It was a difficult task to review so much great work, but the Office team is very excited to move forward with these projects and hopefully see them all in the Apps for Office Store!
