JAKARTA – The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and Microsoft announced the launch of the Imagine Cup World Citizenship Competition in Indonesia. The competition asks students aged 16-25 to form teams and create original Microsoft software applications that address development challenges in the fields of education, democracy and governance, and environment. One team in Indonesia will win Rp 50,000,000.

“Technology can empower people from students to heads of global corporations, to make a difference. USAID is proud to support this technology competition to empower young people to make a positive change in people’s lives in Indonesia and around the world,” said USAID Deputy Mission Director Derrick Brown. “USAID admires students who think about the greater good and strive to turn their innovative ideas into the next big thing.”

In previous years, contestants created innovations ranging from an app that photographed a person’s eye and detected signs of anemia, a Microsoft Xbox Kinect technology that taught people how to use sign language, to an education app that used animation to teach children mathematics.
