General Rules for Competitions

  • A team must consist of 2-4 students. Some additional consideration will be given to teams that include at least one first- or second-year undergraduate student. Help us develop the next generation of IS and data professionals.
  • Students can participate in multiple competitions but cannot be finalists in multiple competitions. If a student is a finalist in more than one competition, the student must choose which one to compete in at the finals held in Logan, Utah.

Competition Attendance Policy

  • At the 2024 AIS SCLC, we are dedicated to ensuring a fair and competitive environment. Our guidelines are designed to provide all teams with an equal opportunity to present their work without distractions.

    • Entry and Exit Times
      Spectators can enter or exit the competition room only during designated buffer periods, following each team's ten-minute presentation and five-minute Q&A session. A staff member will enforce these policies strictly, ensuring no interruptions once presentations begin. Nobody can enter or leave the competition room while a team is presenting.

    • Phones and Noise Policy
      Attendees must silence all electronic devices and remain quiet during presentations and Q&As to prevent distractions and maintain a respectful atmosphere.

    • Competitor Holding Facility
      Competitors will be held in a designated facility before their presentation time to prevent them from observing their competitors and ensure fairness. Teams will be escorted to and from the competition room according to the schedule.

    • Viewing Restrictions for Competitors
      Competitors cannot watch presentations of teams within the same competition track to maintain a level playing field.

    • Enforcement and Compliance
      Adherence to these guidelines is essential for fair competition. Please comply to avoid disqualification and removal from the venue.
      We appreciate your cooperation in creating a respectful and competitive environment for all participants. Best of luck to all teams!
