Dear Dream Different Contest Semi-Finalist:
Due to unforeseen delays in the delivery of development kits to some Round 2 qualifiers, we are extending the Round 2 entry deadline to help ensure that everyone has enough time to develop their prototype devices. Round 2 entries are now due no later than 11:59 p.m. PT on May 15, 2009. It is estimated that Round 3 will start on June 15, 2009 and end on July 31, 2009, but the exact dates will be determined on or around the close of Round 2, based on the availability of selected Finalists to travel to a designated demonstration location.
For full details, please see the updated Official Rules at http://www.dreamdifferentcontest.com/rules.aspx.
On behalf of the entire Dream Different Contest team at Microsoft and Marden-Kane, we thank you for your patience and understanding.
Thank you very much,
