Info and Key Dates


On Thursday morning, students will compete in three rounds of pitching in front of 10-15 finalist judges via Zoom conferencing. 

We are going to finish our day at 4:00 pm with a live stream of the 4 track winners as they pitch for additional prizes. Thanks to our eSports colleagues, this live stream will be available to the public via Twitch:

We are excited to share that President Marlene Tromp (Boise State University) will give a few remarks at the beginning of our live stream, followed by Megan Lacy (Chief Design Officer + Co-Founder of Lumineye and Olympic marathon qualifier) who will talk about her experience as a 2018 IEC participant and winner.
