Once you have organized your team, please email Jeff Barko (barkojef@msu.edu) the name, email, and year of each team member. If you would like to join as an individual, please send your name, email, and year to Jeff. If there is enough individual sign ups, a team of individuals will be made. As mentioned earlier, the first 6 teams to sign up will be the teams that compete in this competition. More details will be sent out to each team regarding distributing the case once team sign ups close. 
Please keep in mind that this is an excellent opportunity to become more involved, gain leadership experience, and become familiar with how case studies work as many of your higher level classes will focus on them a lot.
If you have any questions about this case competition, please email Jeff (barkojef@msu.edu) and he will get back to you as soon as possible.
