IgniteFM! Student Challenge

Inspired by “hackathons,” in which competing teams of computer programmers work together to create a fully functioning application in a very short amount of time, IgniteFM! presents a complex FM problem to student teams who compete to find a solution. Teams present their solutions to an audience and are judged by a panel of FM professionals. The winning team receives a cash prize. Come see the innovative problem-solving of future FMs.
