Smeal College of Business announces the winners of the Undergraduate Smeal Impact Competition for Spring 2024

The 2024 Undergraduate Smeal Impact Competition was organized by the Center for the Business of Sustainability and the Smeal Diversity Enhancement Office. The case competition was sponsored by Impact Competition, which is an organization that seeks to empower students to address the most pressing social issues in their community.

As the 4th annual competition, 17 teams registered with the following five teams earning a place in the finals to compete for first ($3,000), second ($2,000), and third place ($1,000)

  • Morgan State University 

  • Penn State Scranton 

  • Penn State Smeal College of Business (three teams) 

The case focused on the housing crisis many people face on a day-to-day basis as well as the sustainable solutions that 3D printing poses while combatting this crisis. Housing is a basic need that needs to be met so individuals and families can thrive. This year’s competition asked teams to take a deep dive into these issues, highlighting solutions that are applicable within their local and surrounding community.
