The virtual competition is now open.
The student competition is divided into multiple tracks. Competition within each track is divided into two main phases: 1) an initial virtual component that any student/team can participate in and 2) an onsite, face-to-face student competition for the top teams in each track from the virtual competition. The virtual competition will begin December 2. This year’s onsite competition, for finalists from each track, will be held at the 2014 Student Chapter Leadership Conference and Competitions hosted by Arizona State University on March 20-22, 2014. Students/chapters only need to pay for travel if they are selected as finalists.
