    Please join the Project Management Institute (PMI) Rochester Chapter PMI Rochester Chapter for an evening of celebration as we prepare for the start of the intercollegiate competition February 5th! 
    Students will have an opportunity to ask questions before the competition begins. Attendance is optional (but complimentary food and drink is provided).  We hope you will come and informally meet some of the participating HR representatives, judges, mentors, academic partners, PMI board and PMI volunteers.  To reduce judging bias, we ask that students and teams do not reveal their school affiliations at any point until after May 5th when the competition ends.

    ROC The Project (RTP) Overview

    This competition is designed to engage college students in the practice of project management and to develop their leadership skills. Student teams from colleges in the Rochester area are given a scenario for which they must provide a solution. They are assigned a certified mentor(s) to teach them how to transform their solutions into project plans using the planning processes documented in the PMBOK. PMO panels judge and provide feedback for each of the four phase gates, which each team must pass through before the final day of the competition. On the final event day, student teams will present their project plans to the PMO panelists in a preliminary round to determine the final four teams that will move forward to have their plans judged by area executives for cash prizes. This day also includes lunch and afternoon keynote speakers and a reverse career fair to provide job and internship opportunities for students.
