UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State student chapter of the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) won first place in the Mid-Colonial District regional ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl, which took place April 15-17 in Philadelphia.

The competition features teams comprised of up to four students and tests their knowledge of ITE, transportation planning and engineering topics, as well as some fun categories. Since 2009, when the traffic bowl was first introduced, a total of 110 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, conducted annually at the institute’s International Annual Meeting and Exhibit, which this year will be held Aug. 20-23 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
