Release time:June 7, 2023 / Lu Meili

In recent days, the 2023 “Challenge Cup” Extracurricular Researches and Tech Products Contest for College Students in Beijing has come to an end. Beihang University won 6 special prizes, 6 first prizes and 3 second prizes in the main competition, and hence clinched the Capital “Challenge Cup” – the highest honor of this event. This year, a total of 487 Beihang students and 156 instructors won provincial or ministerial awards, taking back altogether 15 special prizes, 23 first prizes, 19 second prizes and 33 third prizes. It was the fifth consecutive year that Beihang claimed the highest honor of the Capital “Challenge Cup” since 2019.

The 2023 Capital “Challenge Cup” competition is sponsored by Beijing Municipal Committee of the Communist Youth League, Beijing Municipal Education Commission, Beijing Association for Science and Technology, Beijing Federation of University Societies, and hosted by Beijing Technology and Business University. Since its official launch in March this year, it has received positive responses from colleges and universities in Beijing, attracting more than 30,000 students from 80 units to participate. A total of nearly 5,000 projects were submitted, showcasing contemporary college students’ initiative and efforts in promoting and implementing the spirit of the 20th CPC National Congress through innovation and entrepreneurship practice.

This year’s event adopted the “one cup, five competitions” system. Apart from the main competition, four special contests were introduced, each focusing on specific topics. Beihang recommended 140 outstanding entries to the five contests, winning 9 special prizes, 17 first prizes, 16 second prizes, and 33 third prizes.

In the near future, the university will select six among the winning entries to participate in the 18th National “Challenge Cup” Extracurricular Researches and Tech Products Contest for College Students, which will take place later this year at Guizhou University. Meanwhile, the university will further select outstanding student innovation and entrepreneurship teams to participate in the 9th China International “Internet+” Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition.
