Four teams. Four charities. One mission – IT Grand Prix; TechEd 2010, New Orleans

Four teams of Microsoft Certified Professionals are revving their engines! From June 1 through June 4, 2010, they’ll race from Washington D.C. to TechEd 2010 in New Orleans, where the winning team will award a $10,000 check to the charity of their choice.

Along the way, they’ll overcome challenges and help local non-profits. But they need your help: pick your favorite team, join their virtual Pit Crew, and help them meet the challenges they’ll face during the race by solving on-line challenges to earn points for your team. It’s your opportunity to help four great causes in a way that only MCPs can!

NPower, a non-profit organization that matches technical volunteers with local non-profits requiring technical support, will match each team with a local non-profit in need of assistance on a specific project. Teams will not be aware of their objectives for the day until their morning meeting with David Elfassy, the IT Grand Prix host.

Help MCPs as they race in the IT Grand Prix to TechEd, facing technical tasks at local non-profits. Register for a virtual Pit Crew at and learn more about how to earn points for your team! As a Pit Crew member, you’ll compete in online challenges before and during the race. Take exams, publish a Virtual Business Card, and more… the online challenges are all within your reach!!
