Case Competition Toolkit


Case study competitions are a useful tool for:

  • Capturing what’s working, what’s not working, and lessons learned on a certain topic or approach
  • Gathering a body of examples for analysis and further study
  • Facilitating connection and knowledge-sharing among people doing similar work

This case study toolkit was developed based on experience managing USAID’s Collaborating, Learning and Adapting (CLA) case competition for three years. Over the course of those three years, the case competition planning and implementation process was adapted and refined many times. As you plan your case competition, plan to learn and adapt as you go! 

We suggest reading through this entire toolkit before you begin planning your case competition. Then, use the Table of Contents to jump down to specific sessions as you plan and implement.
