Every year at Imagine Cup we offer a variety of online challenges and they tend to change from year to year. This year we're retiring the three technology-based ones from 2013 and are instead kicking off three new ones, the first of which has now started! This year at Imagine Cup we want to help you get your project off the ground early and with the right planning. None of these challenges require any programming at all. Instead, they are to help you get started with the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

Our online challenges include:

Your team can compete in any, all, or none of the challenges as you wish. They aren't required for our main competitions. But if your team does compete in these challenges, I expect your project will be substantially stronger as a result.

Our challenges use our standard competition categories: Games, Innovation, and World Citizenship. You can change categories from challenge to challenge if you like and it doesn't lock you into a specific competition for your main project.

For each challenge, the top team in each category will win $3,000! In addition, the top ten teams in each category will be honored as Challenge All-Stars. All of these winners will receive exclusive Imagine Cup lapel pins for team members as well as certificates of victory and they will be celebrated here on our website for the entire Imagine Cup community to congratulate.


Our Pitch Video Challenge is now underway so please check it out and get started on your submission!
