The Student Traffic Bowl was founded in 2009 and is an annual competition at the District Annual Meeting between ITE student chapter teams using transportation planning and engineering topics for the clues, questions, and answers in a Jeopardy format. All teams are required to attend the Pre-Qualification round on Monday of the Annual Meeting.

The winning team will receive the Western District Student Traffic Bowl traveling trophy, a certificate, and $1,000 in travel funds from the District to attend the International ITE Annual Meeting to compete in the Collegiate Traffic Bowl Grand Championship.
