Kay Payne Case Competition

Kay Payne Undergraduate Student Case Competition

The Kay Payne Undergraduate Student Case Competition, established in 2007, encourages students and faculty to engage in innovative and creative thinking for businesses that reside in Nebraska. Through this experiential learning, undergraduate students are supported by UNK College of Business and Technology faculty to complete consultation projects with rural Nebraska businesses and non-profit organizations. Each semester business students compete in the Kay Payne Case Competition to determine which student group has developed the most effective and professional project. The case studies are judged by members of the Dean's Advisory Board.

A new plaque has been displayed near Jitters at the West Center Building (hanging just above the Collegiate Readership Program racks) to celebrate the accomplishments of these outstanding undergraduate students. Be sure to stop by and see it!
