PRSSA 2016 Bateman Case Study Competition Updates

September 10, 2015

PRSSA is once again pleased to offer PRSSA members the Bateman Case Study Competition. We have confirmed The Plank Center for Leadership in Public Relations and Edelman as sponsors. The client will be announced by Sept. 28.

After receiving feedback from Advisers and previous Competition participants, the PRSSA 2016 Bateman Case Study Competition will be debuting two major changes.

The first change will be a modified timeline for the 2016 Competition. This new timeline aligns better with the school year and will allow for more participation from Chapters that were not able to participate in the past. The modified timeline will feature an implementation phase of Feb. 15–March 15. A more detailed timeline will be included in the starting materials.

PRSSA also is pleased to present the second change — an increase to the monetary prize awards for the 2016 Competition. The first-place team will receive $3,500 and a trophy; the second-place team will receive $2,500 and a plaque; and the third-place team will receive $1,500 and a plaque. This increase was possible due to a generous contribution by our long-standing Champion and son of the late J Carroll Bateman, Walter Bateman.

If you have any further questions about the Competition, feel free to contact PRSSA National Headquarters at (212) 460-1474.
