Mr. Blue and Gold was created as a Skule-only contest to crown the winner who would represent the Faculty of Engineering at the U of T-wide Mr. Blue pageant in November. When Mr. Blue was cancelled, it is assumed that Mr. Blue and Gold continued on as an event within Engineering and was moved to be part of Godiva week.
