Council for Retail and Sales (CRS) Regional Case Competition
Powered by Sherwin-Williams

Attention Business Instructors/Professors

The Council for Retail and Sales at Penn State Lehigh Valley is sponsoring a regional student case competition.  This team-based competition is tasked to solve a significant business opportunity for a company.  This year the sponsor for the competition is Sherwin-Williams.  

The top team will get $1,000 to be divided by team members and a ‘traveling’ trophy that will be housed at the winner’s school.  The second-place team will be awarded $500 to be divided by the team.  

The competition culminates in team presentations in front of a judge’s panel at the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus.  Each school or branch may submit up to 2 teams, composed of 4 people/team.  Last year some of the colleges ran a local competition and then sent their top team(s) to the final competition.   This is a great class or club (e.g. Enactus, Business Clubs) project!  The competition will be judged on the written executive summary and the presentation.  

The competition will be held Nov. 6, 2018 at the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus in Center Valley, PA.  Please consider bringing a team to compete.
