So, What is Let’s Get Real?

An International Academic Competition

Let’s Get Real™ is an academic competition and an opportunity for teams of students to gain experience working on real business challenges. Corporate sponsors supply real challenges for which teams submit solutions in business format. Each team chooses from the list of challenges the one(s) it finds most interesting. Challenges might include areas such as environmental issues, manufacturing, distribution, engineering, software creation, human resources, health and safety, facilities design, public relations, or any other areas deemed important to the corporations involved.  There is NO entry fee for teams.

Mission Statement

Let’s Get Real™ seeks to provide all students with opportunities to reach their full potential through innovative and creative educational activities. In working to establish non-traditional, “out of the box” opportunities we are addressing student transition from the four walls of the classroom to the realities of corporate America. In addition, we are putting corporate America in touch with an untapped resource for solving problems with which they are faced.

 Let’s Get Real™ is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation. 


The essence of high level learning is providing young people with the opportunity to apply their interests, experiences, and accumulated knowledge to real world situations. It is through such application that truly advanced growth takes place. The Let’s Get Real program is a perfect example of situations where direct involvement with challenging problems has produced remarkable growth in problem solving skills, creativity, cooperativeness, and the kinds of motivation necessary for success in all walks of life.

— Dr. Joseph S. Renzulli
