The USF Institute of Traffic Engineers (ITE) Student Chapter Traffic Bowl Team won the 2017 Florida Section/District 10 ITE Traffic Bowl competition, which was held June 22 during the 2017 FSITE Summer Meeting in Naples, Fla. This marks a repeat District 10 Championship for the team, since the previous USF student team also won this honor last year. 

The USF team will be representing USF/CUTR at the national level in Toronto during the 2017 ITE Annual Meeting to be held July 30 to August 2, 2017. This year's student team comprises Ms. Manvitha Rajalingola, Mr. Kurt Lehmann, Mr. Ashok Sampath and Mr. Richard Driscoll.

Each year ITE student chapters from Canada and the United States participate in a competition known as the ITE Collegiate Traffic Bowl. This competition features teams comprised of up to three students testing their knowledge of ITE, transportation planning and engineering topics as well as some fun categories. Since 2009, when the traffic bowl was introduced throughout Canada and the United States, a total of 102 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, which is conducted annually at the Institute's International Annual Meeting and Exhibit.

The USF team will face other teams from Northeastern, Penn State, Purdue, University of Minnesota, Clemson, Cal Poly and UT at Austin in the Grand Championship.
