The first day of Imagine Cups has ended, and it was a whirlwind of nerves, drama and demos.

Wednesday morning, the 35 Imagine Cup World Finals teams made last-minute tweaks to their demos, paced the hallways practicing their speeches and reminded themselves why they were at Imagine Cup. For the Vanguards team, it’s about helping their friend manage an anxiety disorder. The team designed a horror-themed video game that helps players learn how to calm themselves down, even during an intense situation.

To find out more about team Vanguards and what inspires and drives some of our Imagine Cup World finalists, check out the full story at the Microsoft News Center .

Be sure to catch the Imagine Cup awards ceremony at 9:30 a.m. PT Thursday and find out which teams will place first, second and third in the Games, Innovation and World Citizenship competitions.
