South's BEST

In 2001, Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and College of Sciences and Mathematics jointly created a local BEST hub, Alabama BEST, as an effort to “grow” future engineers, scientists, and technical professionals to meet the future needs of business and industry in the state. Alabama BEST made a tremendous impact in its first year as a BEST competition site. Word of the competition spread throughout Alabama and even across state lines as more organizations and universities wanted to know how to start BEST competitions in their communities. Alabama BEST became South’s BEST, serving hubs east of the Mississippi River. It grew from those first 36 teams to 50 teams from 11 hubs in 2008.
