Gold Challenge Competition - Innovation

Sponsored by: KPMG

Deadline: Tuesday, May 31, 2022 by 11:59 PM EST

Overview

Beta Alpha Psi recognizes that many chapters often go above and beyond what is required to become a Superior Chapter. In an effort to reward these chapters, the KPMG Foundation sponsors the KPMG Gold Challenge Competition. The competition lets BAP students put their multimedia skills to use by creating a 5-minute video that explains and/or demonstrates why their chapter deserves the award or why a top student would want to become part of the BAP organization. 

Guidelines

How did you leverage innovation this year to elevate your chapter on campus and/or within your community?

How do you plan on continuing to leverage innovation when you return to campus?

Prize/Award

$2,500, per chapter, up to 10 chapters (which represents the top 5% of all BAP Chapters)

Eligibility

Chapters must meet the following criteria:

  • Been a Superior Chapter for school year 2021
  • Been a Superior Chapter for school year 2022
  • Participated in a regional meeting, either as a chapter operations* presenter or Best Practices competitor.
  • Participate in the 2022 Annual Meeting, either as a chapter operations presenter, Best Practices competitor or applicant/participant in Project Run With It.

Process

Chapters wishing to participate in the KPMG Gold Challenge should review the KPMG Gold Challenge guidelines. These guidelines will provide you with everything you need to know about the contest, how to apply, and how to submit your video. A KPMG Gold Challenge nomination form (only submit one nomination form) and individual release form (one for each person that participated in the video) must be completed and submitted with video entry. 

*This year, Chapter Operations will be conducted as an interactive roundtable session at the 2021 Annual Meeting. Your chapter can confirm your commitment to participate by checking the appropriate box on the Annual Meeting Registration site.
