The Captive Insurance Companies Association (CICA) will host a webinar on April 21 to present the winner of its student essay contest. 

The webinar, which will go live at 12pm Eastern, will include presentations from the top three finalist teams, outlining their plans to use captives to help fictional organisations in real-world emerging industries.

Megan Moore and Natalie Kojababian from the University of Southern California will present on how captives can assist the cannabis industry. 

The contest is sponsored by Strategic Risk Solutions (SRS), and Jonathan Stark, director at SRS, will moderate presentations and a panel discussion with the top three teams. CICA president Dan Towle will announce the winning team, which will receive a cash prize of $2,500. The second and third placed teams will win $1,500 and $1,000, respectively. 

Meanwhile, on April 22 SRS will also host a webinar examining captive insurance responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
