Case study competition

While planning for the Effective Education Partnerships Conference, one of the comments I heard most frequently was, "respect the talent in the room." Many of the people who will attend this conference (and who are already starting to sign up!) are experienced practitioners, and are interested in opportunities to share their expertise.

One of the ways we've found to address this is by hosting a case study competition. We've developed case studies with hypothetical scenarios featuring a business outreach initiative, a district-level partnership office, and a business/education coalition. Respondents will highlight the issues presented in each case study and provide their own solutions, with the winners in each category receiving a cash prize ($500 first place, $250 second place) and recognition at the conference.

These case studies, along with the selected winning entries, will also be the focus of a round of facilitator-led breakout sessions, in which participants can discuss the case studies and possible solutions - a great way to begin peer-to-peer discussions on effective partnerships.

I mention this in order to announce that the case studies are now available - go here to review and download them. I hope you'll find them intriguing - we're looking forward to a great response.
