Teams must consist of three MSU undergraduates. The competition is open to all MSU undergraduates enrolled in spring semester 2017.
Each team selects a multicultural hero from the list provided on the application. A team has 10 minutes to make their case including a biographical overview, how their hero has carried and passed the torch of justice, how their hero contributed to the struggle for human rights, the relationship between their hero and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and why he/she should be inducted into the Hall of Fame. The winning team is selected by a panel of judges and will receive a $2000 grand prize.
The final round of the competition will take place on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 from 6 PM-8 PM in N100 Business College Complex with a reception following. Multicultural Business Programs and Altria Group Distribution Company sponsor the competition.
In the past 15 years the Multicultural Heroes Case Competition has awarded over $38,000 in prizes and 474 students have participated. Last year two teams tied for first place with powerful presentations on Maya Angelou and Harvey Milk.
