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 in front of sponsors seeking candidates for internships and full-time opportunities!

  • The GMiS College Bowl teams are comprised of students enrolled in universities from across the country and coached by government and industry STEM professionals.
  • Through each of the four rounds of competitions, the students and industry coaches work together and develop a sense of trust and familiarity, which provide an excellent basis for fostering creativity, team spirit, and leadership.
  • Students are able to demonstrate their agility, communication assertiveness, innovation and other workforce attributes that are not easily showcased in a resume.
  • A new Individual Student Category added to the College Bowl helps to further showcase the exceptional talents of students.
  • Cash prizes are awarded to the winning teams and in the individual category.
