The Baylor University Entrepreneurship Program and the United States Association of Small Business Education (USASBE) are sponsoring a student case writing competition at the annual USASBE Conference Jan. 13 in Hilton Head, S.C.

The first annual international event is open to undergraduate and graduate students interested in case research and writing.

"There will now be an exclusive venue for students who perform research for case writing to submit their research and be recognized for it," Baylor professor of management Marlene Reed said.

Cash prizes will be $2,000 for first place; $1,000 for second place; and $500 for third place.

Cases must be original, should advance the field of entrepreneurship and contribute to an understanding of entrepreneurial phenomena. There is no limit on how many cases can be presented.

"It's a great experience," Reed said. "We really need to have more opportunities, so hopefully students can get their research published."

The deadline for submission is Sept. 1. Winners will be decided by a panel of experienced case writers.
