After a presentation before the judges on January 13, 2011 at the USASBE Conference held at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina (SC), the team was declared the second prize winner. A team from Queen's University in Charlotte, SC, won the first prize, while the third prize was bagged by a team from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
