Microsoft has announced the winners of the Ninth Annual Microsoft Imagine Cup, a student technology competition. Team Hermes [her-meez] from Ireland took the top honors in Software Design with a car safety device, and earned $25,000. Team Hermes was chosen from more than 400 students from 70 countries entered in the Worldwide Finals held last week in New York. The Imagine Cup awards innovations that deal poverty, road and fire safety, and creating a more sustainable environment. Microsoft also announced plans to launch a three-year, $3 million dollar grant program to help recipients realize their vision.
