On May 8, 2013, Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan attended the 2013 Microsoft Jordan Imagine Cup competition in Amman.
“The Imagine Cup brings the brightest young minds together to build apps with the magic of technology.
Microsoft created the Imagine Cup over ten years ago with the idea that students can change the world. What begins with a burst of inspiration and a lot of hard work can become a future software breakthrough, a jump-start for a career, or a flourishing new industry.
The Imagine Cup invites students from around the world to learn, collaborate and change the world by applying their imagination, passion and creativity to technology innovations.”
According to the Petra News Agency this year’s competition had “…450 participating students from various Jordanian universities and schools.” After visiting various exhibits “…showcasing projects by 10 semi-finalists teams…” Her Majesty presented awards to three teams for basically doing a super awesome job. This years winners are: Team Jordan University of Technology, Team Petra University and Team Jubilee School.
