FINAL EXTENSION OF STEP 1 TO 4 DEADLINES TO SUBMIT APPLICATION ENTRY

MAY 12, 2022

Our Make the Case team conducted short 10 minute interviews with a majority of team leaders, and in many cases, the entire student team from May 4th to 11th. Based on these conversations, we decided to extend the dates of the competition for fairness to all the teams. These deadlines are now FINAL.

MAY 1, 2022

After consulting professors, administrators, and our sponsors, the "Make the Case" working team decided to extend the deadlines for this competition due to the unprecedented impact of Covid sweeping through East Asia, especially in China and Hong Kong.

These extended deadlines give student teams more time to not only select the initiative for their case study, but an additional two weeks to submit the Case Study.

In addition, the Make the Case team created (an optional) new USD $1,000 prize due May 30th that will require time and effort to complete, i.e. most likely can't be done at the last minute.
