Lets Get Real is a high school competition that allows high school students to solve real-life business problems for large corporations such as Hershey Foods. The program is run by Dr. Dan Holt who resides in Pennsylvania.
The students must tackle these business problems as if they were employees of the company and attempt solutions similar in manner to an Industrial Engineer.

Lets Get Real is a contest open to students of the entire United States, however, the contest is mostly based in Pennsylvania.
In order to enter the contest a team of students must submit a 5-10 page report which is then checked for validity of ideas, way in which the ideas are outlined, and other general parameters. If that teams' report is chosen as a finalist then the team must compete using an oral presentation format at the company headquarters. Finally, a winner for each company is decided upon and a trophy awarded to the school.
