Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Case Study Competition

GVSU's Circle of the National Leadership Honor Society, Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), is pleased to host the 12th annual Leadership Case Study Competition at Leadership Summit 2019

What is the ODK Leadership Case Study Competition?

The ODK Leadership Case Study Competition is an annual event that takes place at Leadership Summit. The purpose is to provide an advanced educational experience for student leaders attending Leadership Summit. Up to eight teams of two students will review a scenario related to student leadership and fifteen minutes to present their strategies to a team of judges. Students will also be given materials to help them work through the case study. The judges also have an opportunity to ask questions following the presentation.

Worried that you can not attend the breakout sessions?

Don't fret! There are four breakout sessions throughout the day and the Case Study Competition will only interrupt one of them.

Why should I participate?

Participation in the ODK Leadership Case Study Competition is open to anyone attending Leadership Summit. Those that participate gain an opportunity to strengthen skills in situational analysis, critical thinking, presenting, and team work. Of course, the competition is also a fun way to engage in Leadership Summit and be recognized during the awards ceremony as well.
