Each year, since 2009, ITE student chapters from Canada and the United States participate in a competition known as the ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl. This competition features teams comprised of up to 3 students testing their knowledge of ITE, transportation planning and engineering topics as well as some fun categories. Since the Traffic Bowl was introduced as an international program, 121 ITE student chapters have participated in a traffic bowl tournament at section or district events. The teams winning an ITE district competition advance to compete in the Collegiate Traffic Bowl Grand Championship, conducted annually at ITE’s International Annual Meeting and Exhibit.
In 2021, the Traffic Bowl Grand Championship tournament and all district qualifying events were held virtually due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. The Oregon State University ITE student chapter team won the 2021 tournament, and their name has been added to the Voigt/Davis Cup, the trophy for Traffic Bowl Grand Championship.

The first ITE District Traffic Bowl tournament commences in March or April of each year to qualify teams for the Grand Championship. The results to date and the current schedule are shown below. For details on participating in your district’s traffic bowl, contact the District Coordinator.
The Grand Championship Traffic Bowl will be conducted on August 1, 2022, during the ITE International Annual Meeting and Exhibition in New Orleans.
