The 2021 Imagine Cup is where passion meets purpose, and student innovators can bring their boldest tech ideas to life to impact our world. This year’s all-digital competition saw thousands of teams developing projects in four categories that aligned with their passions: Earth, Education, Healthcare, or Lifestyle. Students were invited to complete the Microsoft Learn Challenge as the first step in their competition journey and form teams of one to four people to leverage innovative tech, like AI, Power Platform, and Big Data, to develop a project proposal to make a difference.  


We are consistently inspired by solutions students create to tackle common issues, and the 2021 competition is advancing with the selection of our World Finalist teams. 


2021 prizes  

These teams are heading to the next stage of the virtual World Finals to compete for USD10,000, Azure credits, and four spots in the World Championship. Runners-up will win USD2,500 and Azure credits. During the World Finals, teams will pitch their ideas to expert judgesdemo their tech, and engage in a question and answer sessionProjects will be judged on their innovative use of Azure technology, accessibility and inclusion, and marketability as a business idea.
