Submit Students’ Work for ABC 2023 Student Competition

Dear ABC members,

Do you have a strong student writer in a business communication-related course? You are invited to sponsor a student’s entry for the 2023 Student Competition Award.

ABC invites undergraduate students to enter the annual Student Competition by submitting a written response to a case scenario. Winning entries will receive a plaque at the annual ABC conference. The 1st place winner will receive $300; the 2nd and 3rd place winners will also be recognized with a monetary award. The winning student's instructor will be announced at the annual conference.

Congratulations to University of Richmond co-authors Dr. Cynthia Conn and Randle D. Raggio for submitting this year’s case. The case asks respondents to navigate tricky interpersonal situations and organizational constraints while sending bad news to separate receivers.

Find the submission guidelines and process on this Student Competition Award page. The submission deadline is May 19, 2023.

If you have any questions, please email the Student Competition Committee chair, Ashly Smith at Thank you!
