How Do We Sign Up?

Who Competes in Each Event?

I’m Not Really the Competitive Type…

No problem! A big part of the Walmart Biz Bowl lies in the social aspect within and between participating companies. And, let’s not forget that some of the events are participation based, which means you can earn points just for being a part of the fun. Cheering on your teammates to victory is also a big part of the day!
