Deadline Approaching for Microsoft Digital Signage Challenge -- Now Open to Students Nationwide!

Commit to submitting– win a Kinect camera!

Win the competition – win an Xbox Kinect bundle, plus $1,000 scholarship!

Digital Signage technology is not something widely studied in the technical schools of America — yet. So for tech companies hiring recent graduates, much of the training in digital signage and other "real-world" technologies happens after the students have already left college and after they're already on the job. This year, the Avnet Tech Games has added digital signage to its lineup to show college students some of the challenges waiting for them in the real-world job market.

In this year's Digital Signage Challenge, teams will compete to design the best all-around example of an engaging interactive digital signage application. The digital signage interactivity can include touch, gesture or mobile interactivity. The students can use different technologies to create interactivity, from creating a mobile app or using QR codes to using touch to using a Microsoft Kinect camera for gesture interaction. Each team will have access to a Kinect camera to use for the competition, and winners will get a camera and a Microsoft Xbox Kinect Bundle, along with $1,000 scholarships, for each of the one- or two-person team members.
