How can you be the spark of change? Today we are excited to announce a contest YouthSpark Challenge for Change which is designed to support youth in changing the world around them. If you are between the ages of 18 and 25 and have a passion for a cause such as literacy, saving the environment, disease awareness, education or anything related to social good and improving your community, you can enter for the chance to win the tools designed to help make your idea into reality.
To enter you need to submit an entry form by May 24th describing your idea and showing how Windows 8 and Office could help bring it to life.
Judges will select 20 finalists who will be asked to submit a video sharing more about their ideas. Five grand prize winners will receive a prize package which includes a technology bundle, a volunteer trip to Kenya in August 2013 and $2,500 cash to fund their winning projects.

Unfortunately I can't take part in this contest because I'm not a US resident. It's been a long time since I'm having a look at a lot of Microsoft contests that are US only.
Hope you guys open the next ones for the rest of the world.
I think you're missing a lot of great ideas.

I went to a few of these events in college. It wasn't like what Microsoft is providing, but it was great to talk about solving problems. I was debate style and the winner got $200. So this is great for today's youth!
