The prize
The top four UW-Eau Claire students receive trophies and all expense paid trips to the 9th Annual National Collegiate Sales Competition at Kennesaw State University (near Atlanta, Georgia), March 16-17, 2007. Students competing at this national event interact with recruiters from some of the most highly regarded companies in the United States.

Last year, the UW-Eau Claire team placed sixth nationally, beating teams from such schools as Babson College, Baylor University, Harvard, Purdue, Texas State University and University of Houston. UW-Eau Claire student Lindsey Zastrow took first place in the service category and placed 4th in the competition overall. She was less than one point away from competing in the championship round.
