The Imagine Cup encourages young people to apply their imagination, passion and creativity to technology innovations that can make a difference in the world today.

Now in its sixth year, the Imagine Cup has grown to be a truly global competition focused on finding solutions to real world issues.

The 2008 Theme: The Environment

Provoke has been mentoring Victoria University team WebStuffDone (from Wellington).

If you check out their site you’ll see it’s a simple quiz game where you earn points. If you earn 100 points then they plant a tree.

The more tree-planting points they earn before their presentation on Thursday (3rd April 2008) then the more chance they have of winning the competition. 

They have teamed up with a respected and dedicated organisation, Trees for the Future, to handle the tree planting (and in the process of signing-up their first sponsor).

So if you’ve got a spare minute they (and your planet), would really appreciate you spending a bit of time on it and telling your friends and family!
