One of the 35 teams who are competing next week in the World Finals for the 2016 Imagine Cup, Microsoft’s global student technology competition, will take home this year’s Ability Award.

The Ability Award is aimed at encouraging and recognizing student teams whose projects are geared toward accessibility and empowering people with disabilities. The winner will be announced July 28 in Seattle.

Last year, Team Prognosis of Greece received the Ability Award. The team built an application that can detect early-onset Parkinson’s Disease through voice analysis.
