DEADLINE: Collegiate Cup Competition
December 16 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Debuting under the bright lights of Super Bowl LIII, the Collegiate Cup is the first statewide collegiate competition of its kind in Georgia. It is open to student teams from any Georgia college or university and features three categories: coding, case study, & design.
The team applications launch on November 15 and are due on November 30. Multiple teams
from the same school can apply for the same category or different categories. Each category
will have different judging criteria and teams from the same school can work independently from
each other on their respective solutions. Our selection panel will review team applications and
announce in early January which of the 20-25 teams will compete on January 25-27.
At the end of the weekend competition, we will judge the solutions to determine the winning
teams for each category. Then, we will tabulate which school is the grand champion, based on
the composite scores of its teams across the three categories.
In addition to the glory of being crowned the first-ever state champions, teams will win cash
prizes. Grand champion prize is $1,000 and category champions will each receive $500. This
year’s competition will reward teams for the best ideas to improve the quality of life in Georgia
by leveraging the state’s strengths.
