We would like to thank you for your interest in participating in the annual Case Clash Competition, presented by Enactus SAIT in partnership with CPA Alberta, RBC and SAIT School of Business.

This year, the competition will happen virtually between April 10 - April 17, 2021. Since it will be virtually this year, the way that the competition usually happens, will be different. Each high school is allowed to send as many teams as they want through filling a form in the Case Clash package and then sending it to us by April 8, 2021. There is no limit for how many teams can participate this year.

In April 10, 2021 on Saturday, we will have an orientation day through Zoom, where teachers and students can attend and we will have speakers from CPA, RBC and SAIT School of Business.The case study will also be released for students on that day. Then, high school students will
have until April 17, 2021 Saturday to solve, present, record a video and send it to us by that day for voting, selection and opportunities to win prizes. I have attached the package for more information along with an info-graphic with the most important timelines and deadlines, please review it carefully. I have attached a form in this email, please let all teams fill it separately and send it back to us before the deadline. Also, I have attached a media release form for the videos that will be posted in YouTube for the submission, please let students fill it and send it back with their applications.

There is no registration fee for this virtual event, however, you need to complete the registration form for each team. Teams will be accepted into this competition on a first come first serve basis. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at caseclash.enactussait@gmail.com.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

About Case Clash:

History

Case Clash was first launched at ENACTUS SAIT in September 2012 and since then has become one of our successful running projects.

 

Mission & Vision

To empower, take on challenges and to overcome obstacles through leadership

Core values:

Teach - At ENACTUS SAIT, we teach our volunteers to be entrepreneurs, leaders and motivators. To take their ideas and turn them into projects that benefit the community and the people involved. Moreover, we encourage diversity and innovation of new ideas as young entrepreneurs of this society.

Empower - Through our words, our actions and the situations we create, we seek to empower those who experience the case competition. In fact, our commitment to do so is one of our defining attributes. We offer an event that encourages confidence and fosters the opportunity for delegates to stand up and stand out.

Inspire - Case Clash gives our volunteers the chance to demonstrate their ability to take on challenges, inspire others to create possibilities and transform the lives of young generation; thus, strengthening the business community.

Knowing that they have what it takes to succeed - To take on new opportunities takes courage and guidance in the right direction. Case Clash pushes the teams to acknowledge their strengths and hone their skills as potential entrepreneurs.

Connect - For many of the students as their last year in high school ends they will be anxious of what possibilities may lay on the other side. Case Cash provides ways for these students to interconnect with societies, entrepreneurs, and create possibilities by taking action. Their actions to get involved will lead to acknowledgement from their schools as well as post-secondary institutions.
