McLean, Virginia-based infotech consulting company Booz Allen Hamilton crowned another winning team at the conclusion of its annual Summer Games Internship Program.

In 2014, Booz Allen launched the 10-week intensive program where college university students build tech-focused solutions for some of its clients’ most pressing problems. Both undergraduate and graduate students are selected for the program, and a Booz Allen media rep told Technical.ly that the program brought in more than 7,000 applications this year.

But this isn’t your traditional internship program. Hundreds of interns are chosen to team up in groups to create their tech solutions under the guidance of senior Booz Allen staff members. At the conclusion of the program, the interns participate in a three-day Challenge Cup filled with conferences and interns pitching solutions they created over the summer to Booz Allen leadership.

This year, 10 teams advanced to the finals after pitching in the preliminary round, where a winner was ultimately selected. On Aug. 14, those finalist teams presented their work at the International Spy Museum in D.C. The event brought in a crowd of more than 300 supporters.

Out of 81 projects, one team of five young technologists hailing from the West Coast dominated the competition to take home the Challenge Cup.

Team UberKuber was selected as this year’s Challenge Cup winner. This team was comprised of Michelle Hokans from the University of Washington, Ashvin Nagarajan, Bryan Pan and Connie Chen from UCLA, and Kea Braekman from Loyola Marymount University. The team worked with Booz Allen employees Varun Patel and Vini Sundaram.

Team UberKuber developed a proof of concept for a visualization tool for containerized applications that it said could be used by both nontechnical and technical users, 3BL Media reported. The tech would include monitoring and alerting capabilities for multilayered virtual infrastructure. 3BL Media reported that Team UberKuber is looking to grow its tech and gain Booz Allen clients as customers.

There isn’t any funds associated with the winning prize, but UberKuber did earn a huge trophy, bragging rights and the opportunity to actually scale their tech solution.
