The New Zealand Secondary School’s Case Competition (NZSSCC) aims to develop the entrepreneurship skills of high school students. It focuses on raising awareness of the business issues that companies face worldwide. NZSSCC aims to provide a competition targeted at secondary schools and students (particularly those who are business-oriented) to develop their skills in producing both innovative and creative solutions to global business problems.
NZSSCC endeavours to offer an experience to high school students in which their speaking, analytical and teamwork skills can be tested and developed. Participants will need to work under time pressure to solve the cases, which will challenge their creativity, problem solving abilities and time management skills. The prizes are as follows:
1st Place: NZD $1000
2nd Place: NZD $600
3rd Place: NZD $300
There is also an International Case Competition offering high school students who have won their national competition to compete against students globally.
