One grand-prize winning team will receive $25,000 and first- and second-place teams will receive $5,000 each, the Framingham, Mass.-based retailer says.

And students from the following schools have been invited to participate: University of California at Berkeley and the University of Pittsburgh in the U.S., as well as students from eight additional universities located in Australia and Brazil.--Sarah Mahoney
