The Ignite Sparky Design Challenge aims to “level-up” Sparky, the most loved and feared mascot in the Pac-12, if not the entire NCAA, by developing the most awe-inspiring and innovative designs imaginable.
Winning teams will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges and will receive a cash prize and funding to implement the design with ASU Athletics for a future unveiling. Additional prizes and funding will provide support to prototype designs while working toward a minimal viable design product to present to the judges.
Ignite Sparky Design Challenge is proudly powered by: the Swette Family, ASU Athletics, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, ASU Devils Invent, and the Global Sport Institute.
