ITE International Collegiate Traffic Bowl

Each year 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 2009 when the traffic bowl was introduced throughout Canada and the United States, a total of 112 chapters have participated in at least one traffic bowl at either section or district level events. The winners of the ITE district competitions advance to compete in the Collegiate Traffic Bowl Grand Championship, which is conducted annually at the Institute’s International Annual Meeting and Exhibit.

During the 2018 season, the Collegiate Traffic Bowl Program featured participation by teams from 68 ITE student chapters in Canada and the US. More than 240 ITE student members comprised these teams that competed in 2018.

The 2018 Traffic Bowl Grand Championship, featuring champions from the Canadian ITE district and the eight US ITE districts, was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. The tournament was won by the University of South Florida. This was USF’s first Grand Championship.

Contact your district’s traffic bowl coordinator for details on participating in your section or district traffic bowl in 2019 in order to qualify for the Grand Championship that will be held during the 2019 Joint International and Texas District Annual Meeting and Exhibit in Austin, Texas, USA.
