Case Study Competition


Are you ready for the Case Study Competition? Competition Day is March 9 at 5pm CT / 6pm ET / 7pm AT


For this two-week event, the Wetland Centre of Excellence students will tackle real environmental questions in Canada. Students will work in teams to research one of two case studies put together by DUCand on Competition Day, they will present their recommendation to a panel of judges. There is no right answer! We expect students to think critically about their case study question and get creative with solutions.

Students will compete in teams of two or three. All teams must attend a mandatory virtual workshop on February 21 at 5pm CT / 7pm AT that will explain the case studies. Competition Day will be on March 9 at 5pm CT / 7pm ATOn Competition Day, teams will be given a 10-minute slot to present to the judges (via Microsoft Teams). Presentations can be up to 7 minutes, and judges will have 3 minutes afterwards to ask questions.

The winning team will receive $500 for their Wetland Centre of Excellence and their names on our Youth Wetland Expert Trophy!
