The Team USA Symposium is pleased to announce its second annual case study competition. The competition will consist of two rounds: preliminary and finals. All teams will participate in the preliminary rounds on Tuesday, March 10, with the top-two teams presenting in the finals on Wednesday, March 11.

The competition will consist of team members compiling a 15-minute oral presentation to a panel of staff within the Olympic and Paralympic Movement. Competing teams will be randomly assigned to one of two groups, from which the top team from each group (as decided by group’s respective judges) will present their solutions to all judges. The winning team will be announced immediately following the final presentations.


Teams should be comprised of no more than four currently enrolled students and one alternate. Each team should have an academic advisor to serve solely as a liaison between the team and the case study coordinator. The advisor should not be involved in the case study analysis or presentation preparation.

Note, teams must register for the one of the conference packages and select the case study competition as an additional item. At the time of registration, each team member’s first and last name will need to be listed, including the advisor. The fee to compete is $250. Payment can be made via VISA credit card in the Cvent registration or by mailing a check. Teams must register for the case study competition by Friday, February 14, 2020.
