Platinum Challenge Competition

Sponsored by: KPMG

Deadline: Friday, May 17th, 2024 by 11:59 PM EDT


Beta Alpha Psi recognizes that many chapters often go above and beyond what is required to become a top performing chapter. In an effort to reward these chapters, the KPMG Foundation sponsors the KPMG Gold Challenge Competition which has been renamed in 2023-2024 to the Platinum Challenge. 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. 


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?


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


Chapters must meet the following criteria:

  • Participate in the 2023 Annual Meeting, either as a chapter operations presenter, Best Practices competitor or applicant/participant in Project Run With It.
