National Case Study Competition in Health Education®

What is the National Case Study Competition in Health Education®?

Every year, NCSCHE® brings together student teams from leading universities to compete in solving a real-life challenge. Three weeks prior to the competition, students and their advisor will be emailed a community-based public health education case. Students work independently to develop a resolution to the issue and a presentation for a panel of judges. Teams will have free reign to address the issue as they see fit, but generally they will have to show competence in the NCHEC Core Competencies for a Health Education Specialist. Students present to a panel of judges, given approximately 15 minutes to present, and then 10 minutes for questions from the panel.

2024 National Case Study Competition coming this Spring!

The National Case Study Competition in Health Education, Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE), Eta Sigma Gamma (ESG), and the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC) are pleased to announce their partnership to expand the National Case Study Competition in 2024. All four entities will be collaborating to continue the tradition of providing students with a top tier professional development experience. 

Now is the time for schools, students, and advisors to begin planning to participate in the competition. Beginning in spring 2024, the Competition will be dually conducted, continuing the practice of offering an online competition experience, but adding on onsite option for students choosing to attend the SOPHE Annual Conference in St. Louis
