Student Case Study Competition

Student Case Study Competition

The NGA Foundation student case study competition brings students from across the country to the NGA Show where they present solutions to an issue currently impacting the independent grocery industry. The program allows them to interact with an independent grocer and ground their education with real-life experience. Participants move through three rounds of judging from food industry professionals and the winners and their schools receive a cash prize!

Each year, an independent retailer is selected as the subject of the competition, providing a budget and relevant details to aid in students' presentation.
