Jina just started announcing the five finalists for the Imagine Cup ‘06 so I guess I can blog about it. The shortlisted teams in no particular order are:
- Perfect Sleep & Energetic Wake Up (P Mahanthege, K Jeewantha, B Balasooriya & H Kumara of Colombo University)
- My Plant (Sudesh, Prabath, Amila & Kosala of Colombo University)
- Panchayudha (Yasith, Shanaka, Prasad & Chathurika of Moratuwa University)
- Smart Buddy (D Abeywickrama, J Liyanaarachchi, K Peiris & D Perera of Colombo University)
- Amity (Y Hettiarachchi, J Liyanapathirana, K Karunanayake & G Perera of Colombo University)
Congralutions guys! So what happens next is that each team will be assigned a mentor (one of the MVPs) and then each finalist will present their entry at the grand final which will be held on the 31st of May. There’s going to be a whole lot of tension and excitement since the presentations will be live in front of the judges as well as all the invitees and the winning entry will be announced immediately.
I also need to congratulate all the other teams that sent in entries as well, believe it or not, you too are a winner for the simple fact that you did compete.
