It's the moment we've all been waiting for . . . the 2017 Google Online Marketing Challenge results are in!

This year we introduced a new AdWords Certification award and algorithm evaluating performance across more campaign types, delivering some of the most impressive work seen in the history of GOMC. You all should be very proud of your accomplishments.

Congratulations to the 2017 winners and a big round of applause for all teams that participated this year!

More than 120,000 students and professors across almost 100 countries have participated in the Google Online Marketing Challenge, helping over 15,000 businesses and nonprofits grow online. We are proud to celebrate 10 years of great impact, but as digital evolves, so do our programs. It is with a heavy heart that we announce we will no longer be hosting the annual Google Online Marketing Challenge as we know it.

While there will be no upcoming competition for the 2017-18 academic year, Google remains committed to providing students with opportunities for practical skill development and will continue to support student development through our free digital skills trainings and certification programs. Please see our FAQs page for more details:

A big thank you to all of the professors who have supported GOMC over the past 10 years! The hands-on learning you’ve fostered has helped students gain practical skills and professional experience, preparing them for successful careers in this digital world. And thank you to the ambitious students who have partnered with businesses and nonprofits in their communities to share their expertise and help them thrive online. Your stories are inspiring!

We are always exploring new ways to engage, empower and grow students, so check out the GOMC website to learn how you can share your feedback to help us continue to provide useful student development programs. Also, see the GOMC website for more information about this announcement, how you can continue to engage in project work similar to GOMC and how to sign up to receive future communication about other university programs, Google student development opportunities and digital marketing education resources:

Thank you all for your support and keep an eye out for the 2017 GOMC results announcement coming soon!

All 2017 GOMC participants, if you haven't already done so, don't forget to share your campaign results and future recommendations with your GOMC business partner.

As a reminder, ads cannot be run in your GOMC AdWords account after the competition. If your business partner would like to continue using AdWords, please help them create a new account that they will own. You can use AdWords Editor to export your campaigns from your GOMC AdWords account and send them as a file to your business partner to import into their new AdWords account. Please reference this Help Center article for more details:

Congratulations to everyone who competed in the 2017 Google Online Marketing Challenge! You should be proud of the work you've done.

We are excited to wrap up another successful year of GOMC and get the judging process underway. Stayed tuned for the results announcement to come in July/August!

We have less than one week left in the 2017 Google Online Marketing Challenge. Remember that post-campaign reports are due before May 31st at 3:00AM PST.
