C-SC to host "Duel on the Hill"
Culver-Stockton College will host "Duel on the Hill," a case study competition for high school students on Thursday, November 6. The event is being coordinated by C-SC Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) and Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) chapters. Teams of 4 to 6 high school students will be given an identical case study prior to the competition. The case study will involve a hypothetical family that is facing a severe financial dilemma. The students will have two weeks to solve the problem with a creative, reasonable, workable solution, based on the family's situation, economics, resources and geography. During the November 6 event, students will present their plan to a panel of judges. Each group will be judged on its analysis of the problem, understanding of the issue, creativity, innovation, feasibility of the proposed solution, thoroughness, and clarity. The top three teams will receive monetary prizes and trophies. Read full story online.
