World Citizenship

Stay Tuned!

Believe it or not, we're just getting started with the excitement of this 2014 season. Our World Finalists are now diving into their projects and getting them ready for our judges at the end of July in Seattle -- where tremendous prizes will be on the line and one team will win a private meeting with Bill Gates!

It's a real pleasure to see so many brilliant students come so far. I want to offer my very heartfelt congratulations to all the teams who competed in our National and Online Finals, to the 170+ teams who made it to the World Semifinals, and now to the 35 teams who will come all the way to Seattle. It's an honor to see your dreams made real. Keep up the great work!

  2. panayiotis eracleous says:

    there is a team that didn’t compete in innovation category but in citizenship and it past in innovation why that?

    1. malteg says:

      Same for the VSO Boost: Our project (tutus) is definitely not a game. But congratulations to all the Winners!

      1. John Scott Tynes says:

        Whoops! Sorry for the copy-paste error. I’ve corrected the VSO Boost list to put the teams in the right categories.

    2. Khaled Sabra says:

      Same here, Our “GAME” (Team Learn n’ Earn) was put in the innovation category for The VSO Boost. Is it possible that we were being judged under the innovation category??

      1. John Scott Tynes says:

        Nope, that was just a formatting error in the blog. I’ve fixed it to show the correct categories.

  3. Mursa Bogdan says:

    Congrats . See you in Seattle !

  4. Ouadie BOUSSAID says:

    Unfortunately we missed the Windows & Windows Phone Challenge first place with our solution, but we’re glad to have more than 10.000 downloads for our app and great reviews. Congratulations to all the winners!

    1. John Scott Tynes says:

      GoKopy looks great. Congratulations on making a strong start in the store!

  5. This is really disappointing. An app with 4+ rating and over 300 user reviews is dropped from the Windows and Windows Phone Challenge.

    1. John Scott Tynes says:

      I understand. But it does sound like you’ve made a great app and I wish you all the best for it!
