As an important way for colleges and universities to carry out quality education and cultivate modern talents, extracurricular academic, scientific and technological work knowledge competitions have gradually attracted attention from all walks of life and the universities themselves. As the current relevant research continues to deepen, the problems are gradually revealed. To explore the organization and management model of "Challenge Cup" competitions in colleges and universities and achieve the scientific development of different competitions, it is necessary for college event organizing departments and professional teachers to adapt to the development of the times, actively expand the online education competition polishing platform under "Internet +" and create online and offline system activities. Furthermore, leverage the effectiveness of competition in educating people and deepen the reform of second-classroom education in colleges and universities. In conclusion, extracurricular academic scientific and technological works knowledge competitions have emerged as a vital component of quality education within colleges and universities, serving as a means to foster the development of modern talents. Over time, these competitions have garnered attention from various stakeholders, highlighting their significance in the educational landscape. However, as research in this area advances, it has become evident that certain challenges exist within the organization and management of such competitions.
