Imagine : Recognition from Microsoft (it’s easy if you try)

Duking it out in Auckland this Tuesday are 20 teams from across New Zealand, pitting their ideas and leet software skills against each other for the New Zealand finals of the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2011 software competition.

One of the teams is Victoria’s own BookSpark, made up of engineering students Koshy John, Chisato Fujii, Jonathan Hart and Janella Espinas.

BookSpark plans to make it easy to sell used books, with a portion of the sale going to support literacy and primary education in third-world countries. The purpose of the project is to encourage education and increase access to books around the world. Last year a team from New Zealand won third place in the world finals in Poland.
