UK's Martin School to Host Policy Solutions Challenge

Published: Feb 20, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 20, 2014) — The University of Kentucky's Martin School of Public Policy and Administration is hosting the south region Policy Solutions Challenge USA case competition tomorrow and Saturday, Feb. 21 and 22, and in doing so, is in some very good company. Competing in Lexington against students from the Martin School will be the Clinton School of Public Service at the University of Arkansas and Florida International University.

 

Other regional sites for the competition are the University of Southern California's Sol Price School of Public Policy, which is hosting teams of students from the University of Utah and the University of Washington; and, the Rutgers University School of Public Affairs, which will go up against students from American University and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

 

At each regional site the three teams, comprised of three to five students each, will vie for the right to advance to the national finals. The first-place teams from each regional will move on to the nationals in Washington, D.C. March 21 and 22.

 

Students from each school will prepare a 10-page memo and give a 15-minute presentation of recommendations to a distinguished panel of judges regarding this year’s topic: Improving Employment and Earnings Outcomes for Younger Workers.

 

'We are looking forward to hosting student competitors from other top schools at the regionals," said Professor Merl Hackbart, interim director of the Martin School. "Our students are very excited about going up against formidable challengers and have been working hard to prepare themselves to make a strong bid to reach the nationals."
