Each year, students from around the country submit case studies on current business challenges. The top three finalist teams present their work before a panel of corporate, non-profit, academic and policy leaders.
To date, over 350 student teams from colleges and universities across the country have participated.
Teams are challenged to research and identify factors, roadblocks, and other impediments to industry image, brand, recruitment and retention.

Registered teams will receive the full case, with complete details, by February 15, 2019. Team submissions will be due March 15, 2019.

The second place team will receive a $20,000 scholarship cash award with the third place team receiving $15,000.
A panel of corporate, non-profit, academic, and policy leaders will serve as judges and review the team submissions. Based on first round scores, the top three teams will be invited to our Finals to present their cases to determine final rankings. Teams will be notified of first round scores by March 29, 2019.
