The Gator ITE Student Chapter’s traffic bowl team recently won grand prize in the ITE Florida Puerto Rico District Traffic Bowl, and will continue on to compete for the international title at the ITE International Meeting in Austin, TX.
The winning team included the following students Corbin Kramer, Asean Davis, Christian Breault, and Luan Guilherme. The team successfully defeated other team finalists from Florida State University and University of South Florida, after USF’s 5-year win streak. In addition to the student chapter competition, the Gator ITE students competed against two teams composed of industry professionals, including UF alumnus Larry Hagen, and won the “challenge the professionals” event.
Each year ITE student chapters from Canada and the United States participate in 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 ITE’s International Annual Meeting and Exhibit. This year’s Grand Championship will be held at the Joint ITE International and Texas District Annual Meeting and Exhibit, July 21–24 in Austin, Texas, USA
