This was the third year participating, but the first time as an official student SHRM chapter. This year UIS took six students to compete: Ashley Tague, Kim Tokarski, Hunter Westbrook, Geoff Piehl, Aerie Nguyen, and Ryan Steffen.

The students competed in a Jeopardy style game in which both UIS teams made it to the semi-final round, and the two groups united into one team to compete in a case competition in which the group won first place against the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois State University, and Northern Illinois University.
