2012 HR Florida Student Games
Calling all Student Chapters – your opportunity to show off what you know is here! Please join us this August for our inaugural HR Florida Student Games. You’ll be competing with other student chapters across the state, so start preparing now and get ready to have some fun!! Following the competition, join us for two and one half-days jam packed with great HR programs and networking at the HR Florida State Conference.
The Games will be held Sunday, August 26, 2012, just prior to the official start of the 34th Annual HR Florida State Conference & Expo, which is slated for August 27-29, 2012 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando.
A one-day event, the HR Florida Student Games is a case study competition where teams of undergraduate and graduate students from various Florida colleges and universities compete in oral and written presentations. The case will be created specifically for the HR Florida Student Games and will focus on a number of HR issues. The teams will have four hours to read, evaluate and draft both the oral and written presentations. After the four-hour preparation period, the teams will provide their written presentation to one set of judges for review and then give their oral presentation to another set of judges.
The winning team will receive an all expenses-paid trip to compete on behalf of the State of Florida in the Regional HR Games in March, 2013. The winning teams at the Regional HR Games are eligible for a purse of $3,000 for First Place and $2,000 for Second Place.
Each team can consist of no more than six students or recent graduates (one year or less) of an undergraduate or graduate program offered in the state of Florida. All team members must be members of SHRM and a SHRM student chapter. Professional SHRM members are not eligible to compete.
Teams should complete the attached registration form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 30, 2012.
Teams wishing to attend the HR Florida State Conference & Expo August 27-29 following the competition should register on-line. The student registration fee is $160 for the entire conference or $85 for one day (student choice of day). For hotel reservations, please click here.
