Role Play Competition
Speed Sell Competition
Social Media Competition
Individuals and teams are eligible for awards. Individual awards are based on an individual competitor’s performance and five students are invited to compete from each participating college or university.
Team awards are based on the combined cumulative scores of the top two teammates from one school.
The tournament-style format for the competition includes a first round, QF, SF, and a final round. Contestants are evaluated on their approach and rapport, needs identification, presentation, handling of objections, closing, and communication skills.
Other students are encouraged to attend and participate in the exclusive networking event, skill building sessions, leadership building sessions and other activities as attendees. If competition space becomes available, these students will have the first option to change their registration status from ‘attendee’ to ‘competitor’.
All undergraduate contestants must be considered full-time collegiate students.
