NDSU students Cameron Wedde, a senior majoring in business administration, and Shane Ward, a senior majoring in psychology, participated in the Great Northwoods Sales Warm-Up, a collegiate competition for students interested in sales as a profession.

Forty-eight college students from 15 schools in 10 states competed for cash prizes and title of top salesperson at the sixth University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Great Northwoods Sales Warm-Up. The event was held Nov. 8-10 on the Eau Claire campus.

“Both Shane and Cameron did a fantastic job. They represented NDSU very professionally and were recognized by many of the competition’s judges and sponsors,” said Mike Krush, assistant professor of marketing and faculty coach.

The highest scoring individual from each participating school, excluding the top overall winners, was named “school champion.” NDSU received a trophy and $150 cash prize.
