What is the Music City Corporate Challenge?
The Music City Corporate Challenge, is an Olympic-style event that allows Greater Nashville Area corporations to interact with each other through a variety of competitions. Competitions will take place over the course of two months and companies will earn points toward their overall team score based on participation, placement and volunteer support. After all events have concluded, the company with the most points in their division will be crowned the Music City Corporate Challenge Champion. Divisions will be based on employer size so similar sized companies will compete against each another.
Events are not final and are subject to change. There will be a minimum of 5 competitions. Competitions in the past have included 3on3 Basketball, Dodgeball, Tug-of-War, Trivia, Bowling, Virtual Run, Golf, and many others!
