This global competition engages students, up to age 22, to solve a problem using their critical thinking, communication, and technology skills. Students, under the direction of a teacher coach, can present their solution using a variety of technologies, including interactive applications, online games, websites, photo essays, online journals/blogs, animations, and videos.

Teams must develop and submit their entries by April 25, 2012. An international panel of judges will evaluate the entries.

Prizes include laptop computers; a trip to ThinkQuest Live, hosted in the San Francisco Bay Area; cash grants for the coach’s school or organization; certificates of participation; and certificates of distinction for top-performing teams.

Students 18 and older who place in the top 10% will be eligible to apply for an internship with the Oracle Education Foundation.
More than 7,600 teams from 52 countries participated in last year’s competition.
Full details of the ThinkQuest Competition 2012 are available at thinkquest.org/competition.
