Show Us Your Team Pride at Summer Institute!

Sponsored by Rio Salado College

After a year of travel restrictions, we invite you to join us for a TEAM ROADTRIP as we journey toward a reimagined future at the 2021 Virtual Summer Institute.

AFIT's 3rd annual Team Pride Contest is a fun way for teams to bond and collaborate around a common goal: to bring our learning theme to life. If you're new to AFIT or you haven't participated in our Team Pride Contest in the past, we invite you and your team members to unleash your creativity and show off your organization's pride.

Contest Categories:

1. Team Car

As we set out on this roadtrip, show us how your team is traveling together. What vehicle is your team driving? What role does each team member play? What is the environment like? What snacks do you have onboard?

2. Disruption Detour

Show us your journey. Where has your organization been? What potholes and detours have you encountered? How did you navigate them?

3. Destination Reimagination

When you arrive at your destination, what will it look like? Show us your organization’s reimagined future.

4. Road Trip Karaoke

Long journeys are always better with music. Create a short video (30 seconds or less) of your team members singing a song that reflects your journey.

5. Best on the Road

Also known as “Best in Show,” this category is for teams competing in ALL FOUR contest categories above. As we journey toward a reimagined future, will your team be the best on the road?

How To Enter:

  1. Using the tools and resources at your disposal, collaborate with your team members to compete in any (or all) of this year's contest categories. You can get creative with your Zoom background, wear matching attire, decorate your meeting room—your imagination is the limit! (Need a little inspiration? Check out last year's winners)
