International Leadership Association Case Competition Team: Now Accepting Applications

The School of Leadership Studies at Kansas State University participates in an annual student case competition at the International Leadership Association (ILA) conference each year. Each fall we are trying to find 4 undergraduate students to represent the School at the ILA conference. ILA is the global organization for all those who practice, study, and teach leadership. ILA strives to promote a deeper understanding of leadership knowledge and practices for the greater good of individuals and communities worldwide. Every other year the conference is help in an international location.

Begun in 2007, the annual student case competition allows students attending ILA's annual global conference to compete against one another in a contest where teams analyze a real world case involving contemporary leadership issues. Working in teams, the students develop strategic recommendations for addressing key issues in the case and present those recommendations to a panel of judges at the conference. The top three teams in each division are recognized during the closing session of the ILA conference.  Furthermore, the top two teams in each division receive complimentary 1-year memberships in ILA and the top team in each division receives a $1000 cash prize to divide among team members. This year's competition is in Atlanta, Georgia.

Applications are due September 9. Completed applications can be turned into room 257. For more information, contact Dr. Andy Wefald at
