America is facing a moment of reckoning for racial justice not seen since the 1960s. In response, corporations are seeking meaningful ways to make sustainable change, and business students are asking what they can do to help create a more equitable society. 

The John R. Lewis Racial Justice Case Competition is a virtual student-run competition with over $40,000 in prizes, connecting business students and corporations to ask:

Preliminary applications will be reviewed until Friday, November 30 at 11:59pm EST. For more details on the case, eligibility, and prizes, visit the competition website.
