Record Number of College Student Teams Enter 2018 Community Bank Case Study Competition

The Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) has announced a record number of college student teams have submitted case studies for the 2018 Community Bank Case Study Competition. This year’s competition focuses on how community banks are using technology. 

Fifty-one student teams from 45 colleges and universities across the nation met the April 9 deadline. Last year, 33 teams participated. This is the fourth year of the competition, which is open to undergraduate students in all fields of study as an opportunity to gain valuable first-hand knowledge of the banking industry.

The case studies will undergo three rounds of judging by three separate panels of banking experts. The top three scoring teams will be announced on May 10 during the CSBS State-Federal Supervisors Symposium in Jacksonville, Fla. The announcement will be streamed live on the competition website at

The student teams compete for an academic scholarship, a chance to get their work published in an academic journal and an opportunity to attend the sixth annual CSBS-Federal Reserve Community Banking Research Conference, held in St. Louis this October.
