IgniteFM! Student Challenge 2020

People love competition.  We revel in the drama of victory or defeat and enjoy recognizing excellence.  The inspiration for IgniteFM! came from hackathon events that have become popular in computer programming.  At hackathons, competing teams of programmers work together to create a fully functioning application in a very short amount of time.

IgniteFM! is a competition where student teams are given four hours to solve a complex facility management problem.  By the end of the four-hour period, teams submit their presentations to the organizers in Microsoft PowerPoint files.  Student teams present their solutions to the judging panel and an audience of professionals in the industry.   Each team has 10 minutes to explain their solution to the problem in a way that is clear, concise and interesting.  Teams are judged on critical thinking, the quality of their verbal and visual presentations, their creativity and their team’s passion and persuasion.

IgniteFM! is sponsored by FM:Systems and we are grateful for their support https://fmsystems.com/
