Fall 2015 Collegiate Maxi Competition – Winners!

DMAW EF Fall 2015 Collegiate Maxi Teams

Teams from JMU, AU & Salisbury compete and win!


FALL 2015 Collegiate Maxi Case Competition

The DMAWEF hosts the annual Collegiate Maxi Case Competition, and has moved ahead to create separate case challenges for both the fall and spring semesters, so that more students are able to enter this competition. Revising the competition from written cases to an oral case format also has the added benefit of being able to acknowledge the winners right at the competition.

The Fall 2014 Collegiate Maxi case challenge was “Earth Hour-2015.” This activity originated with the global World Wildlife Fund, which sponsored this fall challenge on November 14, 2014.  WWF key representative for this competition, Kevin Taylor, assisted by Denise Boatwright,  hosted the case competition in the WWF’s US  headquarters on 24th street.

“The DMAWEF was so excited that the WWF was able to host this case competition in their Washington, DC building, as well as provide this intriguing topic of Earth Hour for this fall event, commented Marilyn Liebrenz-Himes, Chair of the DMAWEF Competition and marketing professor at George Washington University. “We look forward to having another challenging case topic for our spring Collegiate Maxi competition.
