AIS Software Innovation Challenge (2023)

2023 AIS Software Innovation Challenge Award Winners: 

On November 3, AIS Student Chapter members from around the world met to attend the virtual AIS 2022 Student Chapter Leadership Conference hosted by AIS. Students learned from industry professionals, hosted a leadership workshop, and earned awards for their competition solutions. The competition judging committees represented both industry and academia.

This challenged allowed competitors to demonstrate the impact Information Systems can have in improving the world. Teams designed and implemented an innovative IS solution based a their choice of a number of parameters—focusing mostly on the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

The judges decided to award two first place winners and split the first and second place prizes. The Associate Vice President of Student Chapters, Alex Barsi Lopes, said it was too difficult to decide a first place winner due to the high quality divergent paths the two teams took with their submissions.

Congratulations to the following competition winners!
