Microsoft YouthSpark Contest
Do you have an idea that can spark positive change in your community? Here’s a contest you might want to join!

Microsoft recently launched the YouthSpark Challenge for Change, an online competition for youths around the globe, giving them a chance to share how they’re changing or how they want to inspire change in the world. Winners of the competition will win a life changing volunteer trip to the Amazon, a technology bundle which includes an Xbox One and a Windows phone, and $2,500 in cash to help turn their ideas into reality.

Contest participants must be between 18-25 years old. To join, just visit www.youthsparkchallenge.com and complete the entry form on or before March 5, 2014.

Everyone who enters the contest will receive a $10 donation gift card to support a project that inspires them on YouthSpark on Global giving. From the participants, 20 finalists will be chosen and invited to submit a two-minute video. Each of the 20 finalists will receive a Surface 2 with Office 365 University.

“At Microsoft, we are committed to empower the youth not just with technology but with programs that can help them create an impact in the community,” said Raul Cortez, Microsoft Philippines director for Legal and Corporate Affairs. “We believe the Filipino youth have what it takes to lead positive change in the world. Their potential to transform lives and communities is limitless.”

“YouthSpark excites me because it gives me the opportunity to explore what I can do to drive change in my community. It provides me with a venue to share my ideas and actually gives me a chance to get rewarded for it,” said Jim Harvey Yu, blogger and Engineering student from De La Salle University – Manila.
