The Minnesota Prepared case-study competition is under development and will take place in 2023. This competition will provide students with an engaging learning opportunity to increase their knowledge, creativity, and skills to address a current public health challenge.
Case-Study Competition Goals
- Introduce undergraduate and graduate students to a community health challenge faced by Minnesotans, which governmental public health agencies are tasked to address.
- Provide pathways to engaging with public health practitioners, faculty, medical staff, and policymakers who face similar real-life situations.
- Create an opportunity for students to think critically about how to solve relevant community health problems.
Format of Case-Study Competition
Students from schools and colleges at the University of Minnesota will form interdisciplinary teams and be presented with the case study. Teams will work together to develop solutions and a plan to address the public health challenges of the case. They will then present their solutions to a board of judges who will select a winning team and runners-up. Cash prizes will be awarded.
Details about the case are kept confidential until the competition is live so that no team receives an unfair advantage. Revisit this page in spring 2023 for a summary of the competition.
