The opening rounds of competition took place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., Oct. 4-5, in the Pima Auditorium of the Memorial Union on ASU's Tempe campus. The semi-final and final round took place Oct. 7, in the KAET studios on the sixth floor of the Cronkite Building on the Downtown Phoenix campus.
"When we started the competition, we wanted to highlight our outstanding students and draw the same kind of attention we give our sports achievements to intellectual achievements," says Virgil Renzulli, vice president for public affairs at ASU. "Judging from the level of competition and the great crowd support we have had, we have been very successful with both goals. This year we will try a double elimination format to speed up the competition and capture even more excitement."
