AIS Student Chapter Competitions

AIS Student Chapter competitions provide students opportunities to learn, observe and develop their skills with current industry leaders. The aim is to allow students to take their classroom knowledge and apply it to real-life situations they might face in the workforce.

This is an excellent opportunity for students to participate without traveling and, to further encourage participation, multiple submissions from the same school are welcome.

Only members of current AIS Student Chapters may compete in the 2022 competitions. Unsure if your chapter is up-to-date with membership? See the list of current chapters.
