The ITA Fall Challenge!
The Fall Challenge is a programming skills tournament for technology students at targeted Midwest universities, inviting participating companies to connect, meet, and interview the next group of technology talent.
Participation is limited to ITA member companies and is sponsorship based. The 2013 ITA Fall Challenge Sponsors include ADP, Adsensa, Backstop, Corptax, HERE North America, kCura, OptionMonster, SAVO Group and United as Supporting Sponsors. Applied Systems, Authentify, Care Team Connect, Centro, ChannelIQ, Channel Clarity, Classified Ventures, Emmi Solutions, Telnyx and Trustwave as Participating Sponsors. We thank them for their support!
2013 marks the 4th year of the ITA Fall Challenge. To date, we have met with 1,700+ technology students across Illinois and the local region, introducing them to the growing local tech industry. Nearly 20 positions have been filled with students sourced from the Fall Challenge who otherwise would not have known their eventual hiring company. We are gearing up for 2013 program and invite ITA member companies to develop the awareness of their company with this in-demand group of upcoming professionals.
With the support of the Illinois Innovation Council (IIC) and the Illinois Science & Technology Coalition (ISTC), the ITA is doing even more.
We will be visiting these outstanding Midwest universities as part of the 2013 ITA Fall Challenge:
- DePaul University
- Indiana University - Bloomington
- Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT)
- Northern Illinois University
- Northwestern University
- Purdue University
- University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign

If you are looking for the best and brightest, and if you believe that the future of Illinois technology is contingent on talent, we encourage you to join us in the ITA Fall Challenge.
