College anglers compete to win bevy of Lowrance prizes

by Andrew Golden on 11 Dec 2013
. .
Lowrance revealed today its new Insight Genesis™ College Cup 2014 competition. Kicking off January 1 and running through December 31, 2014, college anglers registered with the Bassmaster Collegiate Series or FLW College Fishing are eligible to participate in the College Cup and will receive a free subscription to Insight Genesis for 2014 — the revolutionary personal map-generation tool.

Participants who upload the most acres of sonar log recordings to Insight Genesis from a compatible* Lowrance chartplotter can win up to $1,000 in prizes per month and $16,000 annually for team awards. In addition, an HDS-12, HDS-9 and HDS-7 Gen2 Touch will be awarded to first, second and third place individual monthly winners, respectively. The year’s overall award individual winner will be named Lowrance Prostaff at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic or FLW Cup** and receive a free trip to the championship of their choice.

Lowrance’s first competition exclusively for college anglers, the Insight Genesis College Cup will offer awards for two team divisions: Large-team awards for groups of more than 10 members, and small-team awards for those with four to 10 members. For an added advantage, fans can create a free Insight Genesis account and upload sonar logs that count toward annual or monthly totals for their favorite college fishing team. Sonar logs must be submitted in the Lowrance (.slg or .sl2) format to be eligible and only data not marked as 'Private' in Insight Genesis will qualify toward totals.

Live Insight Genesis training webinars are now scheduled throughout the month of December on the Insight Genesis College Cup web website. As an added advantage, competitors who sign up early in December, can get a head start to begin accumulating totals for the 2014 competition, before the College Cup official starts January 1.

Registration for the Insight Genesis College Cup is free and open from December 10, 2013 through December 31, 2014. To enter, contestants can click here and submit their name, email and school name. Anglers should register with their name and email on file with BASS and/or FLW college fishing registration.

*Compatible Insight Genesis multifunction displays: Lowrance Elite HDI and HDS (HDS Gen2 and Gen2 Touch displays support downloaded Insight Genesis Maps on SD cards, and HDS Gen1 models can generate free custom maps for online viewing only); Simrad NS Series; and B&G Zeus and Zeus Touch.
