  • What is the College Bowl?

    Welcome to the GMiS College Bowl – a fun, interactive event designed to showcase students’ creativity, motivation and team building talents! Launched in 2000, the GMiS College Bowl provides key professional and leadership development training while creating a competitive forum through various rounds of competitions.


    To get the most out of your College Bowl experience, there are 3 required hours over the course of the week. Additional hours may be necessary depending on the schedule set by the team or if the participant wishes to compete in the optional independent work time or extra events.

    Hours are laid out as follows over the week:

    • Team Activity Work Time (discretionary) - Time is dependent on your team
    • GMiS suggests at least one hour each day (Th, F, M, T)
    • Awards Show (required) - 1 hour Independent Work Time (optional) - Time is dependent on you
    • Brazen Networking Finale (optional) - 2 hours max


    Teams are comprised of students enrolled in universities from across the country and are coached by government and industry STEM professionals. Through each of the multiple rounds of the College Bowl competitions, the students and industry representatives develop a sense of trust and familiarity, which provide an excellent basis for fostering creativity, team spirit, and leadership. In addition, students must demonstrate agility, communication assertiveness, innovation by design and other workforce attributes that may not be easily showcased in a resume. Due to the virtual nature of this years competition, a new Individual Student Category has been added to further showcase the exceptional talents of students.

    Be a part of the first-ever virtual College Bowl and register today to participate!

NOTE: This is not a recruiting fair or interview fair. All team sponsors will be provided the resumes of the College Bowl participants prior to this session.

The Individual Competition category is designed with students in mind, by focusing on showcasing their great talents, creativity and skills. A student will be able to accumulate points for this category by completing individual tasks and submitting the work products through the College Bowl portal.

The total tabulated points for a student participating in the Individual Competition will consist of a) for each of the four rounds, the points earned by the team the student participated in, plus b) the number of points a student earns resulting from completing the activities in the Individual Competition. A student who helps his/her team be successful and also completes the individual tasks will be successful in this category. Prizes will be presented to the top students in the Individual Student Competition!
