International Cable-Tec Games

Local Cable-Tec Games

Typically held during chapter vendor shows or regional cable shows, local Cable-Tec games provide an arena for contestants to compete in events that measure their technical abilities, such as cable splicing and meter reading, and demonstrate their knowledge, such as cable jeopardy. Each year, first-place winners of the local competitions are recognized for their achievements as they gather to compete on an international level during SCTE TechExpo. Learn more about upcoming events near you by searching the SCTE Event Calendar.

International Cable-Tec Games

International Cable-Tec Games features the year's local winners competing against each other at SCTE TechExpo for the international gold, silver, and bronze awards in seven categories: cable splicing, meter reading, cable jeopardy, OTDR, fiber splicing, drop connection and MTDR. Top winners place first, second and third overall.

Spirit of the Games Award

The Spirit of the Games Award is presented yearly to a participant, volunteer, staff member, or host vendor who truly embraces and exhibits sportsmanship and the learning environment at the games. The award is established in memory of David Jones, who had a very strong focus on the spirit of the SCTE TechExpo Games.

Candidates for the "Spirit of the Games" award may be nominated, by completing the online nominations form, at any time during the Cable-Tec Games season. The winner will be announced at the International Cable-Tec Games, held in conjunction with SCTE TechExpo.

The 2022 Spirit of the Games Award sponsored by Tempo was presented to Mary Hunter Mercy, Giganet Sales. For future Spirit of the Games sponsorship opportunities, please contact
