Project Run With It (PRWI) furthers the community service component of Beta Alpha Psi and provides members/candidates with an opportunity to engage in a real-world consulting project.
For the first time since Project Run With It began in 2008, the 2020 competition was carried out on a virtual platform. Project Coordinators believed they should be true to the project name and concept and “Run With” the circumstances that existed. Travel and face-to-face networking were necessarily restricted, but the PRWI 2020 competition was still a resounding success.
As project coordinators prepare for PRWI 2021, circumstances are still uncertain. Plans are underway for a live meeting in Las Vegas in August 2021. At the same time, planning for the possibility of a virtual competition is also moving forward.
Some important elements of Project Run With It are not uncertain, and we urge every chapter to consider these elements and the value of engaging in this live consulting case competition:
Project Coordinators are currently in the selection process for NFP organizations to participate in PRWI 2021.
Project Run With It 2021 participants will take on challenging business issues at the request of the selected NFPs to assist them in furthering their worthy and timely mission. Details of the projects will be released to selected participants who confirm their intent to compete and to register for the BAP 2021 Annual Meeting by May 1, 2021.
Each chapter represented on the first place teams will receive a plaque (which will bear the name of the participating student and chapter) and a $1,000 cash award.
